Biology and Psychology Major
I am working as a veterinary intern at a equine private practice referral center in Granbury, Texas.
I did multiple years of research in the lab of Dr.
Jennifer Dearolf, including studying the effects of corticosteroids on the
development of respiratory muscles in fetal guinea pigs.
How Hendrix prepared me for success
I graduated with a strong background in the sciences,
particularly in biology. As a veterinarian I deal with people everyday,
including ones in situations of extreme stress, so my psychology degree helps
me understand better how to work with my clients.
After my internship year I may pursue an associate
position at a private practice or a equine surgical residency. Veterinary
medicine is rapidly becoming more specialized, similar to human medicine.
The hard work is worth it in the end when you get to
do something you really love every day!
