What drew you to LSU and the CoA?

What drew me to LSU is an opportunity to pursue a doctoral degree. What has made LSU my home is becoming a part of the College of Agriculture family.  

What advice do you have for future students?

The decisions you make today will impact your life forever. Set goals and work to achieve them. Let no one deter you from your dreams. Stretch yourself beyond your comfort zone and know all things are possible and everything works out.

What is your favorite part of your job?

The best part of my job is interacting with students. I enjoy encouraging them on the bad days and celebrating with them on the amazing days. I also like that no day is ever the same, and I get to be a part of such an amazing team.
