Dr. Timms is one of my mentors and has been since the day I arrived at ISU. He is well known in the Dairy Science Community and has no problem introducing students to professionals from across the nation. Not only is he one the most valuable faculty at ISU in Kildee hall, he is great outside of the classroom to give advice and support to many students. I fully believe I am not the only student’s life that he has changed because Dr. Timms is extremely selfless. No matter if I’m asking for life advice in his office, learning in his classroom, or working on one of his projects Leo has been one of the best mentors I could have asked for in my life. His personality is radiant, and he is so positive at all times but always honest with every student, and all of those qualities come together to make a fantastic advisor, mentor, and life-long friend.
