What do you like about the UD College of Agriculture and Natural Resources (CANR)?
I’m constantly thankful that I applied to UD on a whim because I think the challenging program and the access to the farm and labs is an incredible opportunity.
What is your most memorable CANR or UD experience?
I think the first time I realized the fact that I had found my passion was during the labs in Animal Science 101; they were simple, yet they opened a window for me. Also, I won’t forget the mandatory UDairy trips my Anatomy group took after particularly hard labs—it made the consecutive chemistry class much easier to endure.
I want to work with exotic animals one day, perhaps in a zoo or a national park in management.
What are your career goals?
I want to work with exotic animals one day, perhaps in a zoo or a national park in management. And perhaps one day I will settle down to companion animals, but I want to work with animals more out of the ordinary first.
What is an interesting or unusual fact about you?
I have moved seven times in my life and I think this contributes to the reason I love change so much. Seriously, I move my dorm room around at least 3 times a semester (as much as my roommate allows).
What is your favorite book, movie, or song?
Harry Potter, hands down. “A truly great book should be read in youth, again in maturity and once more in old age…” and, as I grew up reading HP, I don’t think there will be a time that I won’t enjoy them.
