Why did you decide to come to the University of Nebraska–Lincoln?

I really like the atmosphere of East Campus and the Animal Science Department had to offer. I really enjoyed talking to faculty members in Animal Science and it really just felt like home to me. 

What is your favorite thing about the University of Nebraska–Lincoln?

I really like that Nebraska makes opportunities for all students who go through college here. East Campus provides the small-town atmosphere that I am used to as I come from a small town. City Campus provides a larger atmosphere that I wanted when looking at colleges. 

How has diversity and inclusive excellence played a role in your CASNR experience?

I have learned from each and every student that I have worked with in CASNR. I enjoy the diversity that CASNR has to offer.  I currently work with the Swine Physiology Department where I take care of pigs.  I wasn't familiar with swine until starting this job and I am so glad that I was given the opportunity to expand my knowledge in a different livestock species that I was unfamiliar with. 

What is your favorite class you have taken so far and why?

My favorite class that I have taken so far is ASCI 341, reproduction and physiology.

What are your plans post-graduation?

After graduation, I plan to pursue a career within Nebraska Extension.

What’s life like outside of school?

Outside of school, I enjoy hanging out with friends.  I also enjoy going back home to help with my family's cow/calf operation and also going to cattle shows with my family and friends.
