Animal Sciences, Pre-Vet Option

I’ve wanted to become a veterinarian for as long as I can remember, and I decided early on that I would go to OSU. I’d like to pursue a career in large animal medicine, possibly with a specialty in equine medicine, and it’s always been a dream of mine to eventually have my own rural practice.

I graduated from Central High School in Independence and enjoy hiking, kayaking, and traveling in my free time. My favorite animals are horses, cows, and goats, and I have four cats at home. I wasn’t able to have any animals except barn cats growing up, so I’m very excited for the opportunities that this program offers and the experiences I’ll get to have here at OSU.
