Kami currently attends Purdue University in Indiana where she will graduate in May of 2023.
Growing up, Kami lived in southern Indiana and chose Purdue for its excellent veterinary program and to stay closer to home and her family. She attended Purdue Calumet (now Purdue Northwest) for her undergraduate and master’s degrees in biology.
Kami always had dogs when she was growing up, and now has a pitbull mix named Willow who is 9 years old. When she was in college, Kami got a pet rabbit and through caring for it and visiting a veterinarian for checkups, she realized her interest in animal medicine and took the opportunity to shadow veterinarians in the area. Kami loved working with animals and became a full-time veterinary assistant and made the decision to pursue veterinary school.
When she isn’t working or studying, Kami loves to stay active. During her time at Purdue Calumet, Kami played basketball for the school and she still enjoys playing intramural sports today. She also loves the outdoors and spending time hiking, camping, and backpacking. She is looking forward to enjoying some of the local parks and hiking trails during her time in Las Vegas.
