I graduated with a Bachelor’s degree in Animal Science from Michigan State University in 2004. As an undergrad at MSU, I worked as an assistant in the ABWG laboratory. I decided to stay on to work on a Master’s degree and I am currently in the second year of my Master’s program with the Animal Behavior and Welfare Group. For my research I am looking at lameness in dairy cattle. I am specifically focusing on early detection methods. In addition to my research, I also serve as the Michigan Dairy Youth Assistant and work extensively with the 4-H and FFA programs.
