OFFICER AT LARGE
Year in School: Junior
Major: Agricultural Communication & Marketing
Hometown: Baldwin, Wisconsin
Dairy Background: I grew up on my family's 1500 cow dairy farm in Baldwin, Wisconsin. I spent my childhood feeding calves and showing cattle at county, district, state, and national levels through 4-H. As a member of 4-H, I also competed in youth dairy judging representing St. Croix County. Passionate about judging, I continue my career at Minnesota as a member of the Senior Team, I look forward to the contests ahead. Furthermore, I am a recent intern with Alta Genetics as a Communication and Marketing specialist developing promotional content at a global level.
Why did you decide to take on a leadership/executive position in the club? I wanted to be on the executive team for the Gopher Dairy Club because I am passionate about the dairy industry and wanted to represent my fellow dairy enthusiasts. Serving as an officer provides me with even more opportunities to grow individually and build more career connections. I want to give back to the club that has given so much to me.
How are you involved on campus and in Gopher Dairy Club? I am an active member in Lambda Delta Phi Sorority serving as the PR Head Chair, Collegiate Dairy Judging Team, Ag Business Club, and NAMA. In Gopher Dairy I have served on the Alumni Committee, ADSA Head Chair, and Clothing Committee. Currently I serve as the Officer at Large, excited to plan events for our club members.
What are your future plans after graduation? I plan to work for an agricultural company as a Communication and Marketing specialist, promoting a company online and print.
What is your favorite dairy breed and why? I love my Holsteins! Growing up with such an influential breed, I have fell in love with these beauties! Black and White only.
