We would like to welcome Kassi, our newest D.V.M. Extern, to Craig Road Animal Hospital! Growing up in Pittsburg, Pennsylvania, Kassi always felt a connection and sense of belonging when it came to the health and welfare of animals.
Kassi attended Pennsylvania State University for her animal sciences degree, but her interest in Veterinary Medicine didn’t stop there. Her desire to explore lab animal medicine led her to an externship in Houston at the University of Texas’s Health Science Center where her study involved laboratory animals ranging from rodents and monkeys to dogs and cats.
“Lab animal medicine has grown dear to me because I want to be the advocate for the animals to have the best lives possible.”
Kassi is currently a third year student at Iowa State University, she hopes to broaden her knowledge in small animal medicine and further develop her technical skills during her time at Craig Road.
Her personal interests include health & fitness, horror movies, as well as volunteering for the SPCA and various animal wildlife clinics. She appreciates all animals including the very small and not-so-cute, at home Kassi has a bunny named “Puff” and two mice “Tootsie” and “Cricket”.
