Brief Biographical Sketch:

Hi there! I'm a DVM/MS/MS with thesis, which means I completed two additional degrees during veterinary school and I'm currently a doctor. Just not a human doctor. Everything else is fair game though!

For undergrad I went to Stanford, majored in Biology, and did a working gap year in California. I went to Tufts for veterinary school, took an extra year to do full time research, published two papers and defended a thesis.
