I placed at State in both volleyball and basketball several years. I hold a school record in javelin. I was president of chemistry club and was 2nd place in the Montana Chemistry Olympia. I showed horses, sheep and cattle for 10 years in 4-H. During that time, I raised numerous champions. I chose UW because it pushes me academically so that I can reach my career goals while rodeoing in one of the toughest college regions. I did not want to stay home, in my comfort zone and settle for mediocracy. I am a fourth-generation cattle rancher & have grown up around cowboys & cowgals my whole life. That is the lifestyle I know & love. Desolate land where there are only cattle in sight is my forte. The overall atmosphere and history of the old west & the cowboys is very relevant in this neighborhood and I appreciate that. It feels like home. My dad is a full time grey hair grower. In his spare time, he tends the cattle & is behind the wheel of a tractor. My mom is a full-time stud, she manages & supports everyone's projects & goals while helping run the family business. My little sister Sophia is in high school still. She golfs, plays basketball & is definitely the better child. No one knows what she will do with her life but whatever it is So will succeed because she is driven, opinionated & will talk you into agreeing with her.
