Supervised Agriculture Experience:
My primary Supervised Agricultural Experience is managing my FFA chapter's apiary! Throughout high school, I expanded our apiary to five beehives and helped introduce honey extraction equipment to our high school curriculum. I love beekeeping because it is such a niche part of the agricultural industry that is also responsible for the survival of entire ecosystems. Everytime I open up a beehive, I know that I'm going to learn and encounter something new. My favorite part of my SAE is sharing it with members of the community, whether it's elementary school students in an urban school district or members of our county beekeeping organization.
What's one thing you are looking forward to this year?
This year, I am so excited to learn more about Wisconsin's agriculture industry! I come from a non-traditional agricultural background so I am eager to learn all that I can from industry experts and over 23,000 Wisconsin FFA members.
What's your fondest FFA memory?
I will always remember serving as a National Delegate at last year's National Convention and Expo. I traveled down to Indianapolis with the State Officer team where we advocated for our Association alongside State Officers from around the nation. I loved serving Wisconsin FFA and the experience inspired me to continue that service as a State Officer this year!
How do you like to spend your free time?
I like to stay active with my friends by playing tennis and softball. I love to watch sports, especially Badger games, (On Wisconsin!) and I am always down to shop or try new foods. My family spends our summers on long road trips across the country, so traveling has always been a favorite pastime of mine. In my down time I enjoy listening to podcasts and reading books.
