Hailing from Oak Ridge, New Jersey, Elizabeth Ashman was introduced to us through our externship program here at Craig Road Animal Hospital. The fourth year student will become a D.V.M. after graduating from Ross University in September 2015.
Concentrating on general practice and internal medicine, Ashman said that working in the field is one of her true passions and finds it to be extremely rewarding. She loves working on all animals and has even worked with big cats like snow leopards and lions at the Rosamond Gifford Zoo in Syracuse, New York.
Ashman also understands how animals can be a very important member of a family. “It’s nice to not only make a difference to the animal itself but also to the clients,” Ashman said.
While she is excited to be reunited with her three dogs back in Jersey, the veterinary student plans to practice in the Midwest and cannot wait to get started.
Tiffany Major D.V.M. has wanted to work with animals for as long as she can remember. She started early, taking her first job at a hospital while still a junior in high school. Dr. Major worked as a veterinary technician for ten years at Pembroke Animal Hospital. During this time she also started on her undergrad at the University of New Hampshire.
Searching for a warmer climate, she went to Ross University for her graduate in St. Kitts, West Indies, where she rescued her island dog, Dexter, a Shih Tzu mix. Her other baby, is an adorable Yorkie named Darby and a bit of a troublemaker.
Dr. Major then went on to complete her clinical year at the University of Missouri where she was introduced to Craig Road Animal Hospital through our externship program. A self-proclaimed “professional student” the doctor found her way back to New Hampshire where she practiced at a 24-hour emergency advanced care veterinary hospital for a year.
Dr. Major enjoys her job because she has the chance to return the unconditional love that animals share with others. “To be able to help a pet is one of the greatest things that someone can do,” Dr. Major said. “They’re always there for us so being there for them just makes me happy.”
Station is a five-year-old Welsh Corgi mix. She prides herself on being a good companion and
has recently become a big sister! When she’s not showing her love and affection towards her
sisters and cat cousins, you can find this lady running the fence at the dog park.
