I received my doctorate in Reproductive Physiology and a Graduate Certificate in Applied Statistics from Kansas State University in August 2014. My M.S. and Ph.D. research was conducted under the guidance of Dr. Jeffrey S. Stevenson. My research focused on improving fertility in first and repeat service lactating dairy cows, dairy heifer fertility, and reproduction challenges in beef cows. Diverse research foci enhanced my skills at data collection, and various laboratory protocols. Presenting research findings to a variety of audiences including: undergraduate and graduate students, faculty, dairy producers, and national conferences attendees have improved my oral communication skills. Publication of research articles in peer-reviewed journals, research extension reports, and poster presentations have provided valuable experience in scientific written communication. 

As a graduate student, I seized opportunities to teach lectures, supervise laboratory courses, and perform research in multi-specie areas of animal physiology. I have provided lectures for courses in Dairy Science, Animal Behavior, and Equine Reproduction courses, as well as serving as a teaching assistant for several other courses and laboratory exercises. In addition to lecturing, I prepared online and in-class quizzes, and exams, while making arrangements for student athletes and students with learning disabilities. I have created and implemented laboratory exercises for courses such as: Anatomy and Physiology, Dairy Science, Farm Animal Reproduction, and Applied Animal Biotechnology. I have taken advantage of opportunities to collaborate in the department to assist in research projects involving ovine laparotomy, equine follicular aspiration, ruminant nutrition, bovine embryo transfer, ovine reproduction, and bovine exercise physiology to broaden my research experience. The variety of responsibilities in the classroom, laboratory, and research areas have provided an extensive multi-specie experience for course development, laboratory activities, and lecture presentations for multicultural and minority undergraduate and graduate students. I have advised and mentored undergraduate students interested in graduate degrees and those students will begin Master’s degree programs during the Fall 2014 semester. I seek to bring my enthusiasm for teaching, leadership, and research abilities to the College of Agriculture and Technology. I am excited about teaching and developing innovative curricula and delivery strategies at Arkansas State University.
