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.
