I’m the newest student to join the GOALS program here at Columbus State University. I’ve spent most of my life surrounded by horses and other animals. Before my day as a student begins, I care for our family’s horses, giving them food and water and making sure they’re safe in their pens.  In addition, I help collect eggs from our chickens and try to protect the guinea hens from my service dog in training, Dakota, who loves to herd them with glee. During my spare time, I am an avid equestrian, competing as a barrel racer with other riders in my local 4-H.  I hope to have a career in animal training, preferably with dolphins or horses.
