Animal Science-Production

Career Goals:

I am currently an undergraduate student at Purdue University majoring in Animal Science with a concentration of production. I have a strong passion geared towards the swine industry, which started as an undergraduate working at a boar stud. I continued that passion by assisting with research this past year. This summer I will continue working within the industry at New Fashion Pork where I will be focusing on growing my knowledge on the aspects involved in swine food production. I am currently narrowing down paths within the industry for me upon graduation. I wish to continue my education by obtaining a master degree in either swine reproduction or nutrition so that I may be a greater asset in the industry down the road.
