Please welcome Francess, the newest extern at Craig Road Animal Hospital!

Francess is originally from Dover, Delaware. She is currently enrolled at North Carolina State University, graduating in May 2023. She chose North Carolina State for their wonderful veterinary program and to be close to family. She obtained her undergraduate degree at Delaware State University.

She always knew that she wanted to be a veterinarian from childhood and fell in love with it as she grew older. While she did not have a lot of pets growing up, she does have an 11 ½ year old cat named Jade who she has had since high school.

Francess found out about the externship program for Craig Road Animal Hospital through the student representative for her university. She loves client interaction and getting to know people and make connections with families and owners.

Outside of work and her studies, she enjoys reading historical fiction, watching TV and movies, and staying active with competitive field hockey which she has been playing since high school.
