Dresden developed a passion for animal agriculture at a young age growing up on a diversified livestock farm in Central Iowa. While at Iowa State University she was a member of the 2004 Collegiate Meats Judging team which sparked her interest in meat science and the food industry. Her passion and commitment to the beef industry has endured through the years, as she continues to maintain a predominantly Angus based commercial cow herd. In recent years she has personally become involved in a commercial farrow to finish swine operation. She feels her outside of the classroom involvement in the livestock industry keeps her in-tune with current trends and brings real world experiences to the classroom.
Dresden is a full-time instructor and joined the Animal Science program and Veterinary Assisting program at Hawkeye Community College in 2008.
