Career Goals:

Once I graduate with my bachelor’s degree from the University of Mount Olive in May of 2020, I plan on pursuing a career in the research field. Preferably, I want to work on research that will benefit farmers and ranchers by finding way for them to raise better quality animals for food production more efficiently. Within five years, I wish to be working toward my master’s degree in animal science. With a masters degree I wish to be able to have more freedom to research my own ideas in order to contribute to the agricultural industry.
