Emergency Veterinarian, Triangle Veterinary Referral Hospital – Durham NC

2011 Major: Biological Anthropology & Anatomy (now Evolutionary Anthropology)

How has being an Evolutionary Anthropology graduate from Duke helped shape you personally and/or professionally?

"As a pre-veterinary student at Duke, the Evolutionary Anthropology program allowed me to complete my basic science requirements for vet school, but also offered me the opportunity to explore my interests more specifically. Between the Duke Canine Cognition Center, a field class at the lemur center, and comparative anatomy classes, I was able to get valuable hands on animal experience to bolster my veterinary school application."

What advice would you give students in Duke's Evolutionary Anthropology programs? 

"I definitely recommend getting involved in the research! A benefit of the Evolutionary Anthropology program is it’s small size. As a student, you have the opportunity to work closely with your professors."
