I am from Blacksburg, South Carolina and have always had a love for animals and the outdoors! I grew up hunting species such as deer, turkey, and ducks with my dad at my side. I attended Clemson University for my undergraduate education, then continued on to University of Georgia for Veterinary School where I am currently. In the field of veterinary medicine, it is often difficult to explain to people how my love for helping animals also drives my passion for hunting. As a result, educating people on their correlation has become an everyday thing for me. A recent hobby of mine has been working with my younger bird dog, Izzy. We have lots to do in preparation for duck season this year! I also have two other dogs, Ryder and Captain.
