I was raised in Levy County, Florida. I was an active member of Bronson FFA and had a very successful SAE program in beef entrepreneurship, where I raised and exhibited both crossbred and purebred Angus cattle. I was a member of the Florida Jr. Angus Association and the Florida Jr. Cattleman's Association in high school. Throughout middle and high school I judged livestock in the Florida FFA Livestock judging CDEs, making it through preliminary contests and on to state contests. I served a year as a Florida FFA State officer and traveled the state and nation, experiencing both small and large scale production animal agriculture. Upon fulfilling my year of service to Florida FFA, I entered the University of Florida as a freshman and began my degree in Animal Science, before changing majors (half way through) to Agriculture Education and Communications. I was a member of the UF Block N' Bridle Animal Science club and was a member of the UF Intercollegiate Livestock Judging team in 2014. I am currently the agriculture teacher and FFA advisor at Suwannee High School in North Florida and I enjoy coaching livestock judging teams and seeing students grow in new agricultural knowledge.
