Hometown: Bethel , PA

School: Pennsylvania State University

Major / Species: Animal Science with minor in Ag Business Management

Career Goals: I will graduate in the from Penn State in May 2018. My main goal is to pursue a career in Animal agriculture. My focus is the dairy industry, but I am interested in working with any species in animal agriculture. Last summer I was a Dairy Consultant’s Intern and I could work with many different dairy farmers. I think that helping dairy farmers is what I really want to do after graduation. My family also has dairy farm in Berks county, where we milk 320 registered Holsteins 3 times a day. Another goal I have, later in life, is to one day own the farm and run it with my younger brother. I want to help dairy farmers and run a efficient operation some day in my life.
