I was very happy to learn that I was a recipient of the Targeting Excellence scholarship. I would like to thank you all for the financial support that you have provided me, both with this years and last years scholarship. Receiving the Targeting Excellence Scholarships has lessened my financial burden and allowed me to put more focus on what is important, my education. I am very appreciative of this scholarship.

Career Goals: Growing up on a 500 cow dairy farm has fueled my passion for working with food animals. I am specifically interested in working with dairy cattle and poultry. I am currently pursuing a Bachelor’s Degree in Animal Science with a minor in Poultry and Avian Sciences at The Pennsylvania State University. While I am not exactly sure of what career path I will take, I know that I would like to attain a graduate education in either Animal Science or Veterinary Medicine. I am very interested in pursuing a career in research. I would love to follow a career path that allows me to combine my interest in research with my passion for animal agriculture.
