Animal Science

SAE Project:

My first SAE project is Veterinary Science. I work at H&E West MO Veterinary Clinic in Appleton City. At the clinic, I get experience with both large and small animal work as a vet tech. I’m also employed at Harrisonville Animal Clinic as a kennel technician. Additionally on some weekends, I help a local veterinarian with large animal reproduction work. My second SAE is an  Agricultural Services project where I operate and manage five acres of crops and custom baling of hay and straw. 

What motivated you to want to become a Missouri FFA officer?

I wanted to serve as a Missouri State FFA Officer to show the members of Missouri FFA that you don’t have to grow up as the typical ag kid to be successful in this organization. As a state officer I hope to help members the way that FFA helped me. FFA brought me out of my comfort zone and helped me to find my voice, my passion, and my purpose. I want the opportunity to help other members find their place within this organization and the agriculture industry.

What legacy do you most want to leave with Missouri FFA members during your year of service?

The legacy that I want to leave with Missouri FFA during my year of service is that each and every member is bigger than the fears that control them. I want FFA members to learn that fear doesn’t get to control our lives and that we can push through anything with determination, grit, and support from those closest to us. 

What are your plans for the future?

My future plans are to attend the University of Missouri, majoring in Animal Science/ Pre-vet. After that I plan to attend veterinary school at either MU or Kansas State University. My overall goal is to be a large animal veterinarian with a focus on cattle reproduction. 

What is something unique or interesting that few people know about you?

Something unique about me is that I don’t like my food to touch. In fact, I have divider plates at home that I use on a daily basis.

Advice to FFA Members

My advice to FFA members is to take advantage of every opportunity that is offered to you no matter how far out of your comfort zone it is. Never let the fear of failure stop you from achieving your dreams.
