What is your favorite Auburn experience?

 My favorite experience was having the chance to attend three football games with the Southeastern Raptor Center. During the 2018 Arkansas vs. Auburn game and the 2019 Tulane vs. Auburn game, I had the privilege of releasing Spirit and Aura (respectively) over Jordan-Hare Stadium. Nothing compares to the feeling I felt before, during, and after I opened that carrier. I also attended the 2019 Iron Bowl with the raptor center and walked Aurea around the football field. I will forever cherish these memories and those birds.

What are your future plans?

I plan to move to Pigeon Forge, Tenn., to work for the American Eagle Foundation as an Avian Care Specialist (my dream job). We care for over 60 non-releasable birds of prey everyday and educate the public about the importance of protecting our raptors and the environments they live in.
