Thank you so, so much for your generosity towards my education. Without you, achieving my dream career may not be possible.
I grew up showing livestock and working at a mixed practice animal clinic, so I had extensive livestock experience. This industry is where I have found myself, and this industry is where I intend to stay. My ultimate goal is to give back to the livestock industry in which I discovered my passion. I plan on doing this by first completing my bachelor’s degree in agriculture, and continuing my education further in the field of veterinary medicine. As a veterinarian, I plan to work primarily with food animals. I am intrigued by preventative and internal medicine because of my experiences raising livestock, creating vaccine protocols, and my shadowing and employment experiences. Because of this interest, I intend to take it to the next level as a veterinarian. Here at Ohio State, in the little amount of time that I have been here, I have been blessed to learn so much within the world of animal science. I have discovered so many possibilities of specialties that I previously had no knowledge of. I expect these experiences to only increase and extend deeper as I continue on this journey. Because of this, while I feel that it is vital to have specific goals, I also feel that it is equally important to maintain an open mind and accept new interests and experiences as they come. Although I do have specific goals of pursuing preventative and internal medicine, I understand that my future experiences could potentially impact these aspirations.
