     Hi, I’m Carrisa! I am a senior majoring in Animal Science and minoring in Microbiology from Newton Grove, NC. I did not come from a dairy background, but got involved during my freshman year at NC State through our Dairy Education Unit, Dairy Science Club, and Animal Science Club.
   
     After graduation, I hope to attend veterinary school and pursue a career in dairy production medicine. In addition to playing with cows, my other hobbies include learning Spanish, roller-skating, and spending time with my high maintenance cat, Brando.
 
VICE PRESIDENT - Hunter Burton 
([email protected])
Hi! My name is Hunter Burton, and I am the Vice-President this year. I am a senior in Animal Science with an industry concentration. I’m from Virginia Beach, VA, and come from a military background. I love all things cow, horror movies, and potatoes. I have 3 cats, and a dog. I never touched a cow until I started volunteering at the NCSU Dairy Unit. I currently work at an animal hospital and the dairy unit. I’m excited for all of the fun things we’ll accomplish this semester, but I’m most excited for World Dairy Expo in October! If you have any questions about volunteering at the dairy or about life in general, ask away!

Treasurer- Brooke Holmes   ([email protected]
Hey, ya'll! I am Brooke Holmes, and I am the treasurer. I am from Morganton, NC and was not raised on a farm or around dairy cows. I am a sophomore in Animal Science. After graduating, I plan to go to vet school to pursue a career as a commercial swine veterinarian. Even though I don't want to have a career dealing with dairy cattle, I am still interested and enjoy handling them. My passion is pigs, but my interests include large animals with a soft spot for cattle.

Hey y'all! I'm Kristina, a senior in Extension Education with minors in Animal Science and Agricultural Leadership from Nash County, NC. I literally love cows SO much. I worked on a dairy farm this summer outside of Greensboro and absolutely fell in love. I have many ideas for what to do after I graduate, so we will see where life takes me! I love my dog (Opal), travelling, eating ice cream, and laughing until I cry. I'm also in Alpha Zeta, a Pack Peers mentor, and work for CALS Academic Programs and Project YES. My favorite dairy breed is Brown Swiss.

     My name is Sierra and I am one of the agri-life representatives for this year! I am a junior in Animal Science with minors in agricultural business management and extension education. Although I am a horse person, my passion for the dairy industry started back in high school when I competed with my FFA chapter's dairy judging team. Somehow we were state champions made it to Nationals (wahoo!) I am currently a working student with extension horse husbandry where I focus more with the NC 4-H Horse Program and I am also a communications/marketing intern for the Carolina Horse Park.

     Besides horses and cows, my other hobbies include binge watching criminal minds, eating mint chocolate chip ice cream, and hiking. I am super excited for this semester!
