Hello, thank you for taking the time to explore my portfolio. I am currently a senior attending Texas A&M University. At A&M I am working towards obtaining a Bachelor of Science degree in Horticultural Science, with an emphasis in Fruit and Vegetable Production.
I started my college career at the University of Tampa. Here, I spent my freshman and part of my sophomore year pursing a degree in Sociology. Although I thoroughly enjoyed my studies at Tampa, I did not feel truly fulfilled in what I was learning. After deep introspection I felt that I wanted to pursue a career in Horticulture, and decided to apply to Texas A&M.
Ever since I started my education at A&M, I have been actively seeking ways to couple my studies from the University of Tampa with my studies at A&M. Additionally, I cultivated my interest in horticultural science while working at ANUME, which is a certified 501(c)3 non-profit organization that grows organic produce and donates the majority of it to local food shelters.
It is through my studies at both universities and my time spent working at ANUME, where I began my ongoing quest to synthesize both of my educations and work experience in order to become the best farmer I can be.
