4-H Youth Development

About Me

The joke in my family is that I never left 4-H. After growing up as a 4-H member and graduating from Ripley High School in 2010, I continued to help with 4-H during and after my college years, and finally took the plunge and became a 4-H educator myself. I strive to foster in others what 4-H has provided me: life lessons not necessarily taught in school, lifelong friends and a deeper understanding of agriculture. I think of it as a continuation of a life path and hope to positively affect people’s lives the way my 4-H Extension educator affected mine.

 

I have always had a love of agriculture and was going to focus on pre-veterinary classes while majoring in animal science at Oklahoma State, right up until I was exposed to the reproduction section in Intro to Animal Science. After that, I began taking all my electives in classes about animal reproduction. I earned my bachelor’s degree at OSU in 2014, and the knowledge and experiences I gained provide benefits today as I thoroughly enjoy working with 4-H’ers on animal science projects and learning activities

 

In addition to being an OSU alumna, I earned an associate degree of applied science with a focus in the pre-medical field in 2012 from Northern Oklahoma College in Tonkawa.
