I would like to begin by expressing my gratitude to the AETA membership for selecting me for this scholarship to attend the 2018 AETA Convention. It was an honor to be chosen to gain a better understanding of the world’s leading bovine reproductive organization.

My interest in advanced reproductive technologies comes from my desire to help advance sustainable food production. Our profession plays a critical role of helping to disseminate the finest genetics, making our beef and dairy animals more productive, and helping to reduce their environmental impact. I have been privileged to work with and shadow several veterinarians who provide these reproductive services.

It was incredible to attend the sessions and learn about the latest breakthroughs and hot topics within the industry. In veterinary school, we have very little training in this field or exposure to these topics. Even more valuable, in my mind, was the opportunity to meet and network with veterinarians and veterinary students from across the country. My favorite part of the conference was the student/mentor lunch, where we were able to have small group discussions with leading professionals in the field. It was a great chance to get advice on how to gain experience, tips about how to build a practice, and ideas about how to make the most of our clinical year.

Again, thank you to the AETA and the student scholarship selection committee for the chance to participate in this wonderful convention. Hope to see you all in 2019!
