Jillian McNellis ’19

Jillian and friends on a large red chairI am a recent alumni from DelVal, despite the pandemic affecting everyone and everything I was so blessed to have 4.5 amazing and memories to carry with me for the future ahead! If it weren’t for Delaware Valley University being my top school and everything I hoped it would be and more I probably wouldnt have the opportunity in the field I am most passionate about, gaining more than I could have every imagined! Just working in the equine program progressing as an equestrian and horsewoman, I cannot thank DelVal for giving me the opportunities I did to step out of my comfort zone and get a successful career working with top of the line racehorses and learning a new side of the racing industry where already in my first couple of months working along side knowledgeable horsemen in breeding side of things, I have learned so much and I am able to apply the knowledge I got from my equine breeding classes and practicals and put it to good use, which has made getting my Bachelors Degree that much more rewarding
