Why did you decide to attend UW-Madison?
I chose to attend UW-Madison as it is on of the top universities in the world and my professors are leaders in their field of research, so I get to learn from the people who wrote the textbooks for other schools.

What has been your most memorable college experience?
The most memorable part of my college experience was my time this past summer. I chose to not do an internship or do anything related to dairy for the first time ever, instead I chose to study abroad. For two months this summer I took classes to further my Spanish degree at the historic university in Alcalá de Henares in Spain and was able to travel throughout the country.

What has been your favorite course?
My favorite course has been Dairy Science 434: Reproductive Physiology. I enjoyed this class because the labs worked with the lectures to provide the best hands on learning possible and everything we learned in the class was practical and very useful knowledge.

What are your future career goals?
Once I graduate, I want to work with either the reproductive and/or genetics side of the dairy industry. At the same time I want to be able to help improve communication between farm owners/managers and Spanish speaking employees.
