Career Goals:

My career goals are to become a successful woman in agriculture. I am passionate about poultry science especially chickens, simply because that is my background, but also I am passionate about people and their knowledge of agriculture. I enjoy leadership positions and public speaking. I hope to incorporate all of these into a career one day. I would be happy being a poultry nutritionist or a county commissioner of agriculture, I would even be happy being a poultry drug representative. Currently as a sophomore, I am working towards making myself the best and most qualified job candidate that I can be so that when I do narrow down my career goals I will be prepared for anything. I jump at any and every opportunity to better myself and learn more. I am a firm believe in hard work and always having the capacity to learn from yourself and others. I encourage a positive work environment and practice good habits that will hopefully transfer to a successful career one day.
