I grew up the United States, where I studied a bachelor’s degree in Biology and Swedish at the University of Washington. Afterwards, I worked in an animal research lab which shifted my interests to animal welfare and opened my eyes up to the field of research. This position led me to the decision to further my studies with a master’s degree in animal science here at SLU. During my time at SLU, I have become passionate about animal welfare and chose to have this as the focus of my animal science degree. I became especially interested in production animals throughout the program and during my master thesis project. And I hope to work with animal welfare in the near future! Feel free to contact me with any questions!
