I’m a native Virginian, raised in the shadow of the Blue Ridge Mountain range. Both my parents are avid supporters of “outdoor entertainment” and I spent most of my childhood wrapped up in barefoot adventures in the countryside. I began my journey in agriculture with an early fascination with animals and a passion for livestock. I participated in 4-H as a showman throughout middle and high school, and had aspirations to work towards an agricultural production career. I am now an undergraduate at Virginia Tech, pursuing a double major in Animal and Poultry Sciences (livestock production emphases) and Dairy Science (production management emphasis). Outside of the classroom I am a hobby artist and writer, a student athlete on the VT Women’s Rugby team, and work on a local family dairy as a milker and farm hand.
I just finished up a half year internship on a large organic dairy in Northern Germany and am set to graduate in December 2016. I am considering multiple post-graduate plans including working in dairy production management or pursuing a career in extension or private consultation.
