Why did you decide to attend UW-Madison?
I decided to attend UW-Madison because it has the best Dairy Science program in the state. Some of my siblings also attended UW-Madison, so I was excited to follow in their footsteps and experience Madison.

What has been your most memorable college experience?
My most memorable college experience has been assisting the graduate students in Dr. Amy Stanton’s animal welfare lab. I have had a lot of hands-on research experience working with dairy calves in a group-housing system.

What has been your favorite course?
My favorite course has been Dairy Science 433: Dairy Herd Management. We learned a lot of practical information to maintain a successful dairy operation and had lots of hands-on experience and field trips.

What are your future career goals?
I plan to attend graduate school for dairy calf management and then work in Extension or as a consultant in the industry.
