Craig Road Animal Hospital Welcomes Naz, our latest D.V.M. Extern.

Naz joins us from Los Angeles California where she obtained her Bachelor of Arts degree in women studies at Pitzer College in Claremont, CA. She’s currently entering her third year of school at Virginia Tech pursuing her Doctorate of veterinary medicine.

Naz hasn’t always wanted to work with animals, it wasn’t until later in life that she made the decision to pursue a career in animal medicine.” Naz has a master’s degree in arts management and worked at UCLA in the Ophthalmology department pursuing human health care. “I didn’t grow up wanting to be a vet, I had a personal experience that lead to the decision. After experiencing the death of her pet cat, she began taking the required courses to become a veterinarian.

Naz started volunteering at local shelters in California, gaining most of her hands-on experience working with a traveling spay and neuter service that toured low-income areas. She has also worked with exotic birds and horses.   Welcome to Craig Road Animal Hospital Naz!
