I chose Penn State and the College of Ag Sciences because I knew food science was the path for me. I love the tight-knit community and the strength of Penn State as a whole. Also, ice cream.

Favorite Penn State Activity:
My favorite Penn State activity is being a part of the Penn State Food Science College Bowl Team! Trivia is so much fun, and it gives me a chance to hang out with my friends in the major!

What do you want to be when you grow up?
My official dream job is to become a Fish/Shellfish Quality Assurance Specialist. Unofficially, I’d like to be a gardener in a garden where tortoises live. A tortoise gardener, if you will.

Proudest Achievement in life so far:
My proudest achievement is definitely being Wegmans Food Markets first-ever Food Safety Intern, and getting to do a whole store food safety audit over the summer!

Hobbies:
I love reading, writing, binge-watching, and anything I can do outside!

If you could be an animal, what would you be and why?
If I could be any animal, I’d probably be a housecat! An orange one, since I’m a redhead!

Dream Vacation:
I can’t pick just one dream vacation spot, but I’d love to drive all of Route 66 someday!
