Vision for Western Section ASAS

The Western Section of the American Society of Animal Science has always been a strong organization that excels in applied animal science, training graduate students for academia and industry, and creates a network of professionals who are always willing to advise, serve, and foster new growth. It is my goal to continue this tradition while building resources and activities to engage undergraduates who will become life-long members of the Western Section and ASAS, regardless of if they choose academia or industry. It is a privilege to be involved in such a fantastic organization and I look forward to serving its members in the future.
