I enjoy working with dairy cattle, students, and dairy producers on herd health management and achieving excellence in dairy production. My goals include contributing to progress at levels from the individual animal to the industry as a whole. I have spent time visiting and working on operations in many parts of the US, Canada, and Ecuador in order to gain knowledge and experience that can be applied to helping serve the needs of the dairy industry.
I attended Middlebury College, where I earned a degree in physics in 2008, and went on to study dairy production medicine at Cornell University graduating as a D.V.M. in 2012. I am interested in data-based decision-making and dairy management strategies for achieving animal health, productivity, and profitability goals.
In my new position at Cornell, I intend to help continue the trajectory of the dairy programs in both the College of Veterinary Medicine and the Department of Animal Science to be centers for discipline-leading dairy education and innovation.
My other hobbies include fishing and skiing. I enjoy most other outdoor activities, good food, and good conversations.
