I would like to express my deepest gratitude for everyone that makes Targeting Excellence scholarships possible. Vet school is a very challenging time, and this scholarship helps take off some of the financial burden so I can concentrate more on learning. Food animal medicine is a huge part of many people’s lives- directly and indirectly, and it is great to have an organization such as Targeting Excellence that provides opportunities for those in the food animal industry.

Career Goals:

Upon graduation, I plan to practice veterinary medicine within the food animal industry, hopefully as a food animal predominant general practitioner. I hope to specialize in mostly bovine and small ruminant medicine. I have spent numerous hours interning with large animal clinics across the state of Ohio and I am confident there is no other career choice for me. Growing up on my family’s farm has instilled in me a sense of pride and responsibility for the food animal industry, and I hope to use my position as a veterinarian to continue improving the industry and encouraging the next generation to get involved.
