As a transplanted and slightly confused northerner living in the Deep South while attending vererinary school, I have been searching for ways to interact with and assist different communities with the health and well being of their animals. Rural Area Veterinary Services (RAVS) has given me the opporunity to travel to Standing Rock North Dakota in August, to provide veterinary care to a geographically remote communittee.
I currently attend Mississippi State University's College of Veterinary Medicine, where my classmates and I have spent the past year working with local shelters to provide veterinary care and spay/neuter services for adoptable pets. I currently live with a variety of rambuncious dogs and oppinionated horses in Starkville, Mississippi. I am an avid event rider, and self proclaimed four-dog-at-a-time water fetch professional. I enjoy spending time learning about the community, and assiting those who are most in need, a traditoin I hope to continue through my career as a veterinarian.
My path to veterinary school took my through a Master of Public Health degree where I was exposed to the compelxity of community health, and the improtant role that animals play in all of our lives through human-animal bonds and interface of health. The well being of the animals within our communtiees contributes to the health and happiness of everyone, and I hope that my team and I will be able to make a distinct positive impact on our trip.
Please donate to our cause if you are able! $10 get vaccinations for a dog or cat, $75 could save the life of a sick puppy, and $100 gets an animal spayed/neutered, vaccinated, and on the right track for a full and healthy life! Any amount helps us provide quality veterinary care to animals who otherwise would not have access to medical care.
