Where are you from and why did you choose Auburn?
I am from Lithia Springs, Georgia. I chose Auburn because of their great College of Agriculture, the beautiful campus, and the IHSA Team.
What year are you & what are you studying?
I am a senior studying Animal Science Production and Management.
How long have you been riding?
I have been riding since I was 6 years old, I actually learned how to ride by doing Saddle Seat.
What are some things you enjoy other than riding?
Outside of riding, I really enjoy hanging out with friends from the team and doing anything that involves animals. One thing people don't know about me is that I have a passion for exotic hoof-stock animals like giraffes and zebras and would like to be a zookeeper.
What is your favorite thing about Auburn/ the team?
My favorite thing about college has been all of the people that I have met throughout the years. On the team, I remember looking up to the seniors as a freshman and could not wait to fill their shoes. Now I'm in my senior year doing what they did and I couldn't be happier!
