I am pursuing a degree in science and agricultural journalism with an emphasis in agricultural marketing. I hope to work in corporate public relations post graduation. I have a passion for communications and anything and everything Mizzou.
I grew up in St. Joseph, Missouri, along with my two younger siblings, Katherine and Gabe. I attended Catholic school from pre-kindergarten to high school. As for my parents, they both attended Mizzou. As a Missouri native and the child of alumni, tiger pride runs deep in my veins.
My dad is a CAFNR alumnus with a degree in agricultural economics, and my mom graduated from the College of Education. Both of my parents grew up on family operated farms and in rural agricultural communities. This was the main factor in my decision to pursue a degree from CAFNR.
I wrote for Corner Post during Fall 2013 and had no writing experience prior to that. I now have a new appreciation for investigative journalism and am excited to continue practicing it.
While at Mizzou I have strived to become involved on campus, specifically in CAFNR and Greek life. I am a member of Pi Beta Phi fraternity for women. I am the administrative assistant for Pi Beta Phi and currently serve on the awards committee, helping my fraternity be recognized on a campus-wide and national level. I moved into the Pi Beta Phi house this semester and spend the majority of my free time with my sisters or working in the science and agricultural journalism department.
Greek life has given me an appreciation for Mizzou traditions such as homecoming and all the school spirit, preparations and memories that go into it. I can’t wait to see the rest of the memories and traditions that Mizzou has in store for me.
