I am a junior majoring in Veterinary and Biomedical Sciences and minoring in Classics and Ancient Mediterranean Studies. My hobbies include reading, swimming, and taking care of my guinea pigs! I am involved in the Pre-Vet Club, Ag Student Council, Penn State's Equine Research Team, Club Swimming, and Lion's Pantry Ambassadors. I have helped with a research study into cattle antibiotic resistance, a research study investigating equine exercise and the occurrence of gastric ulcers, and I am currently working on a study investigating the biological markers for pregnancy toxemia in Goats along with the transfer of antibodies between the goat Doe and their Kid as a part of my Schreyer Honors College Thesis.

I am studying abroad in Greece this spring through a Penn State Archaeology program as a component of my minor.

My favorite Creamery ice cream flavor is Grilled Stickies!
