###Quick Profile

**What got you interested in plants and plant science?**
The agricultural mission of feeding the world has always been a large factor in my life, and I’m captivated by the potential that plant molecular biology has to improve food and agriculture for both producers and consumers globally.

**Where do you see yourself in 10 years?**
Hopefully as a research scientist in trait discovery or applied technology divisions of an agricultural biotechnology company.

**On a Saturday afternoon, you'll likely find me:**
On the golf course, reading a book or doing work for an organization I’m passionate about!
