About Me

My name is Cole Keesler, and I am currently attending University of Wisconsin -La Crosse. I am studying to become a Dentist, focusing on Biomedical Sciences. Dentists are abundant in my family so my fate was decided before I was even born. In May of 2014, I will graduate with a major in Biomedical Sciences (Biology major with a Chemistry minor). La Crosse couldn't be a better fit for me and I love it here more and more everyday.

During the summer I live at home with my Mom and Dad in Neenah, WI. I work at my Uncle's Orthodontic practice in the afternoons and volunteer at Tri-County Dental Clinic in the mornings. When I am not working, volunteering, or going to class, I enjoying life in the great outdoors. Backpacking is by far my favorite thing to do. I have hiked through many of Wisconsin and Upper Michigan's state parks and national parks including Devil's Lake, Nicolet, The Porcupine Mountains, Picture Rocks, and so many more. Among the many trails in the U.S. I would like to Backpack, Triple Crown at Yosemite National Park is on the very top of my list.

I chose to create this web page on the sweet potato because I really knew nothing about it before hand. In fact, before I started the grueling research process, I don't think I had ever eaten a sweet potato. Wow, has that changed. I have found a deep appreciation for this organism and I hope after viewing my page, you have too! To see where I received the information that you have read on my website, check out my references.
