AMSA student programs provide countless opportunities for growth and access to a vast meat science network. The relationships I built with my peers and industry professionals at RMC and SLC, alongside my involvement with the AMSA Student Board of Directors and the meat judging program, have been paramount in laying the foundation for my career in the meat industry.

AMSA first presented me with opportunities in the meat industry through meat judging but opened various networking opportunities through many events like SLC, RMC, and other events. Networking has been so critical because it provided me more than just a job opportunity, but support, mentorship, and continued education through colleagues in the industry.
