Thank you so much for the time and resources you invest to young people in agriculture. Agriculture has, by far, the most opportunities, networking and financial support I’ve seen and I am so, so grateful and blessed by that support. Your time, mentorship and financial help make vet school, and learning to be a great swine vet possible. Thank you!
I first became interested in a career in veterinary medicine through my exposure to agriculture throughout my childhood. This general exposure and interest increased as I joined 4-H and FFA. It was then expanded through my time working for Pipestone System, Minnesota Pork, both as an ambassador and an intern, Christensen Farms and Swine Vet Center, PA. Additionally, I enjoyed my animal science classes as an undergraduate and further understanding the science of raising healthy animals and producing safe food through my veterinary classes.
