Please welcome Kierra, the newest extern at Craig Road Animal Hospital!
Kierra is originally from Philadelphia. She is currently enrolled at Tuskegee University in Alabama, graduating in May of 2023. She chose Tuskegee after visiting with her undergraduate program falling in love with the environment of the school. She obtained her undergraduate degree at Delaware State University.
She is a life-long animal lover who had many different types of pets and animals throughout her childhood – from turtles to birds and even a little garden snake! She also had a yorkie named GieGie who passed this last year at the age of 18 after a long and happy life.
She has always had a passion for biology and science and wanted to be a paleontologist when she was young. As she grew up that developed into a love for all animals and she took time to shadow at various veterinary hospitals and fell in love with veterinary medicine. After researching a number of externship programs around the country and talking with her fellow classmates, Kierra landed on Craig Road Animal Hospital.
She loves working with owners and pets and getting to build connections while providing care and exploring the science side of veterinary medicine by performing lab tests.
In her spare time, Kierra loves to spend time outdoors (especially at the beach!) and enjoys drawing, art, and visiting museums.
