Career Goals:

My career goal after graduation is to get a job either in the agronomy sales industry or the pork industry. Both industries are near to my heart. Growing up, I was not raised on a farm. I am from a rural farming community, my town has just over 800 people. My home county in Illinois, Lee County, is one of the largest pork-producing counties in the state as well as some of the best crop ground in the state. I would like to have my own confinement barn and be able to raise hogs for the rest of my life. With a moderately sized barn, I can still work a full-time job. I would like to work in agronomy sales. I enjoy working with farmers to satisfy their wants and needs.
