"Two things I’ve been passionate about my entire life—baking and science. I figured I might as well combine them and seek my dream job in bakery science. Flavors interest me. After graduation I’d like to continue studies in flavor science to do research and develop new flavors. This is a tight-knit community that includes not only bakery science but also milling and feed science faculty and students. We’re all part of a supportive family that pushes us to grow in every way.

"The Grain Science Department at K-State helped me design a path for my future. The education I received there was first-rate, and the many opportunities for networking, both on campus and at baking and food science conventions, really helped to connect me with the industry I wanted to be a part of. With the K-State advantage backing me up, I landed a job at a wonderful baking ingredient company. Now I’m doing what I love every day!
