Craig Road Animal Hospital Externship Program: Kimberly

Meet our newest D.V.M. Extern: Kimberly

By: Regina Toney

Kimberly joins Craig Road Animal Hospital as a participant in our externship program.  She attended The University of Rhode Island where she received her bachelor’s degree in Animal Science, she is currently pursuing her D.V.M. at Mississippi State University.

It was in her preschool class, at three-years-old, that she decided that she wanted to be a Veterinarian. “I really like medicine, the study of science and the body, but I really want to work with animals because I have a sweet spot for kittens” Kimberly grew up with a tabby cat named Thomasina, that she looked after for 18 years.

Kimberly heard about what a fantastic opportunity the Craig Road Animal Hospital externship program was, she decided to apply. After working as a Vet-Tech for a few years she wants to become more comfortable performing Doctor tasks. Kimberly is undecided on the career path after graduation. “I’m going back and forth as to whether I’d like to do an internship, or work in an establish practice, after school but I have plenty of time to decide.”

In her downtime, Kimberly loves cooking, kayaking and traveling overseas. In college, she explored Austria, Italy, Ireland, and is hoping to travel more after graduating. She currently looks after a cat named Morgan and Chinchilla named Boomer.

Craig Road Animal Hospital Externship Program: JENNIFER

Meet our newest extern, Jennifer

 

By: Regina Toney

We’re excited to introduce Jennifer, our latest D.V.M extern at Craig Road Animal Hospital. Growing up in Sacramento, California, Jennifer had a wide variety of pets, including birds, bunnies, rats, fish, cats, and dogs. “I’ve always wanted to be a vet, I took a nontraditional route experimenting with engineering but ultimately I came back to my love of animals.”

Jennifer completed her Bachelor’s degree in Animal Biology at The University of California, Davis. Jennifer is currently attending Midwestern University in Glendale, Arizona where she is pursuing her Doctorate of Veterinary Medicine.

Jennifer has an active interest in “ One Health Initiative,”  this organization is a coalition dedicated to the health of humans, animals, and the environment. She currently serves as President of Midwestern University’s One Health Initiative Club.

Jennifer expects to learn as much as possible, complete more “Hands on training” and come away with unique experiences from Craig Road Animal Hospital’s Externship Program. She’s most excited for the diversity of career opportunities that becoming a veterinarian will afford her.

Although she doesn’t currently have pets, her parents still care for their 13- year-old golden retriever named Gabby. In her spare time, Jennifer enjoys spending lots of time outdoors. She most enjoys activities such as hiking, golfing, soccer and recently learned Argentine tango dancing.
