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

UD’s College of Agriculture and Natural Resources has so many amazing qualities, and so much to offer to students. My favorite part about the CANR is that there is a farm right here on campus! This provides students with the opportunity to gain hands-on experience, starting the first semester of their freshman year with the ANFS111 lab.

What is your most memorable AG or UD experience?

An experience in the CANR that was extremely memorable was my ANFS111 lab down on the farm because it really gave me an insight on how amazing the farm truly is. I saw how each of the different sections of the farm is run and how many people are involved overall.

What are your career goals?

After graduating veterinary school, I hope to work at a veterinary hospital to care for small animals. In my hometown, there is a large, beautiful facility called the Red Bank Veterinary Hospital and it has always been to dream to work there!

What is an interesting or unusual fact about you?

An interesting fact about me is that I am on the Delaware Dance Fever dance team here at UD, and I have been dancing since I was three years old!

What is your favorite book, movie or song?

Movie: Cheaper by the Dozen, starring Steve Martin!
