What are you studying?

I am double majoring in Agricultural Economics and Agricultural and Food Business Economics

What is a fun fact about you?

I high-fived Tim McGraw and I taught one of my pigs how to sit.

Why WSU?

The question is WHY NOT? This university offers a great agricultural program, which is why I originally chose WSU. But I have gotten much more than a great agricultural education; I’ve made friends, connections, and memories that I will have for the rest of my life.

What is special about being a CAHNRS Coug?

The atmosphere is like none other. Everyone is proud of who they represent and are more than willing to help you find a home in our college.

Where do you want to be (professionally or personally) 10 years after you graduate?

I would like to be somewhere in the agricultural industry being a positive advocate for agriculture.

Favorite class you have taken within CAHNRS so far? Why?

Econometrics because it allowed me to use a lot of the skills I had gained to that point and apply them to real-life situations.

What other extracurricular activities have you been involved in?

Economics Club, AgTM Club, and co-ed intramural basketball, softball, and soccer

Favorite Ferdinand’s flavor of ice cream?

Apple Cup Crisp
