Where Will Purdue Take You?

Hello Everyone,

Purdue has taken me so many places over the 4 years I’ve been here. Through various organizations, scholarships, and study abroad I have been fortunate to travel to many cities within the US and two foreign countries.

With each trip, I made many connections in agriculture and got to see how diverse the industry is in different geographies. From cotton in Arizona to water quality in the Delmarva, to the many sheep farms of New Zealand, to rural avocado and white corn farms in the Guatemalan hills I have gained a deeper appreciation for our industry. There are so many opportunities and we all share the same goal of feeding people.

All of the places I have been During my four years through Purdue
I spend the Spring semester 2017 study abroad in Palmerston North, New Zealand

This spring break I had the opportunity to travel to Antigua, Guatemala for a mission trip with Filter of Hope. The goal of the mission was to give everyone access to clean water and those in the rural parts of Guatemala live in financial poverty and clean water is often not possible. We trained the people on how to use the filter and take care of it while getting to know them and sharing our life stories and faith journeys.

We installed a Filter for Dora and her family.

As graduation nears in just under 2 months I am will be traveling to Sioux City, Iowa to begin my career with Corteva Agriscience and Pioneer Seed. I am excited to put what I have learned at Purdue and Internships to work and learn how to apply that to the industry. I will be working in a sales territory helping extend the Pioneer brand and serve our customers. The first year is setup to give me opportunities to work on projects and learn the role and company before I step into my own territory manager role.
