What do you like about the UD College of Agriculture and Natural Resources?

I love the amount of hands on experience that the CANR has exposed me to, especially right away as a Freshman. I have worked with almost every animal on the farm, and I am in the labs or on the farm at least 2 or 3 times a week.

What is your most memorable AG or UD experience?

The most memorable experience I have had so far was being able to raise my own calf my first semester freshman year. Having our own calf, Buttercup, added a sense of responsibility and a new level of learning to my academic career at UD. We got to learn hands on from the calves and also have fun while doing it!

What are your career goals?

My goal is to apply and go to vet school and hopefully become either an equine vet or a large animal vet.

What is an interesting or unusual fact about you?

I'm vegan!

What is your favorite book, movie or song?

Some of my favorite movies are The Breakfast Club, The Lion King, Memento, and Inception
