About Me

I grew up on a farm near Canistota, SD, where my family raises Angus cattle. I was active on our farm growing up, and enjoyed showing breeding heifers and competing in livestock judging through 4-H. After high school, I went to South Dakota State University where I completed my B.S. in Animal Science and Agricultural Business. Following graduation, I went on to complete my M.S. in Animal Science with a Meat Science focus at University of Idaho. I joined faculty at UNL in June 2020 (very thankful to be back in the Midwest!). I've really enjoyed being able to get involved in the university through teaching, coaching meats judging, and a variety of extension activities.

What is your position in the department?

Youth Meat Extension Educator

How long have you worked in the department?

I have been in the department about 11 months.

What do you enjoying outside of work?

Now that I am closer to home, I enjoy making trips back to SD to visit family and friends. Since moving to Lincoln, I have enjoyed spending time on the bike trails and exploring the town as much as covid has allowed.

What is something most people don't know about you?

I like to play the guitar (not necessarily well).  I took lessons for a few years in high school and have kept up with it on my own since then.
