Why did you decide to attend UW-Madison?

A few factors went into my college decision—strength of the dairy judging program, reputation of the dairy science department, and location. I wanted an opportunity to be on a winning dairy judging team, to receive a world-class education, and be close enough to home to still be able to show my heifers. Because of these factors, UW-Madison was the only school I applied to.

What has been your most memorable college experience?

Being named the Top Individual in the World Dairy Expo collegiate dairy judging contest is something that I will never forget. Working with my teammates and coaches over the years and ending my judging career with a win was so sweet.

What has been your favorite course?

I loved my senior capstone course (Dairy Science 535). This class was hands-on and allowed me to use my education in partnership with my classmates to assist Hurtgenlea Holsteins in Elkhorn, Wis. create plans to meet future goals.

What are your future career goals?

I graduated in December and started my career as a Marketing Associate at Filament Marketing in Madison, Wis.
