Ashley 2013

Ashley is a senior Biomedical Sciences student and is applying for vet school this year. When she is not studying she enjoys baking, going to the gym, or just relaxing at home.

She has a cat named Lucy, two foster kittens named Charlie and Fluffy, two guinea pigs named Bugsy and Oreo, and a cute little chorkie puppy named Kobe that she shares with her boyfriend. (Her boyfriend is a huge Lakers fan, hence the dog's name).

"I knew I wanted to become a veterinarian when I started working at a small animal veterinary clinic at the age of sixteen," Ashley said. "I love helping people and I love animals, so I knew this career would be fulfilling for me."

Ashley's undergrad survival tip: "Review your notes for 15 minutes after class every day. Staying on top of the information will make it easier to study for tests and help you avoid pulling those all night cram sessions the night before the test."
