What is your story?

I'm passionate about the cattle industry, leadership, and ag policy. My study of focus is agricultural policy; I want to be an advocate for the cattle industry. Besides an interest in the political realm, I have big ideas and lots of energy for them. I enjoy starting entrepreneurial endeavors and running with them. My goal is to combine my interests and passions into a fulfilling and sustaining career.

What is your business?

I've started two businesses- a care package service for college students and bottle openers using upcycled shotgun shells. I enjoy tinkering with new ideas.

Who is your entrepreneurial inspiration OR biggest hero?

I respect anyone who has started a business

What advice would you give to a student starting their entrepreneurial journey?

Simply start something and see where it takes you.

What has been your favorite "Engler Experience" to date?

I enjoy the three day startup weekends. It is a good opportunity to be in a creative and collaborative space with other aspiring entrepreneurs. It is fast-paced and fun.

What has been the biggest hurdle or struggle you've dealt with in your entrepreneurial journey?

One of my personal struggles is finding a passion to stick with. I enjoy starting new things, but I'm always looking to the next thing or idea. I can't pick one passion.
