Meisha is a veterinary medical student at Mississippi State University and will graduate in 2022.
Meisha graduated from the University of Arizona with a B.S in Veterinary Science and an M.S in Animal and Biomedical Industries. She joined Craig Road Animal Hospital as a Student Representative in 2019, and is interested in surgery and veterinary practice management, and aspires to own her own clinic.
“I knew from a young age that I wanted to be a veterinarian, to help animals and the humans that bring them in,” Meisha said. She has worked in many areas of veterinary medicine including large animal research, emergency medicine, low-cost preventative care, and small animal surgery. Meisha first learned about the externship program at Craig Road from family.
“While I have yet to officially extern at Craig Road, my past visits and time spent there has always been very positive and all the staff are wonderful,” she said. Meisha thinks that Craig Road is a truly impressive hospital with the ability to provide high volume, high-quality veterinary medicine in a real-world setting.
“I would recommend anyone looking for a fun, fast-paced, hands-on experience to consider this program. I think it provides a very unique experience that you will be hard-pressed to find elsewhere,” Meisha said.
