Alex is a third year veterinary student who plans to become
mixed animal practitioner with a focus on animal behavior. She is a
graduate of the CVM's Biomedical Sciences undergraduate program.
She has a miniature poodle named Harley who served as Aggieland
Humane Society's Junior Bark Leader. They also have started
competing in American Kennel Club (AKC) agility.
"I knew I wanted to become a veterinarian when I visited my
mother's family ranches as a young girl," Alex said. "Being around
all of those animals made me happy, and I knew being able to care
for them would provide a fulfilling career for me."
Alex's school survival tip? "Break assignments up into
manageable tasks. When an assignment seems too overwhelming, it
becomes too difficult to start and it becomes very easy to
procrastinate. Once the assignment is broken up, develop a timeline
so that you stay on track."
