    I graduated from North Carolina State University with a BS in Agriculture Extension Education, with a concentration in Animal Science and Natural Resources. Before coming to North Duplin I worked for NCSU as a Livestock Agent specializing in swine and animal waste systems in Sampson County. I grew up on a small livestock farm in rural southern Lenoir County that raised meat goats, chickens, horses, rabbits, etc. I was an FFA member at South Lenoir High School for 4 years, where I served as Chaplain and Student Advisor. I participated in the Hunter Safety, and Forestry CDE's(Placed 8th in the State individually in 2005). My SAE was in placement raising meat goats with my Grandfather and entrepreneurship- raising Dutch Rabbits. My time in FFA molded me into the person I am today. I bleed National Blue and Sweat Corn Gold.
