Catherine might be from Austin, Texas, but that
didn't deter her from being an Aggie since birth. (Whoop!) She has
wanted to be a veterinarian since she was five years old and still
can't believe that in May 2016, she will be Dr. Lang. Catherine did
her undergraduate studies in Biomedical Sciences at Texas A&M.
She applied for veterinary school at the beginning of her junior
year and was accepted after three years of undergraduate study. No
matter the test schedule, you can always count on Catherine
cheering on her Aggies at every home football game, and sometimes
even away games.
She is primarily interested in small animal medicine, but
appreciates the diverse career opportunities a DVM degree offers
and is interested in exploring different fields.
Her veterinary school tip? “Don't allow being a veterinary
student define who you are as a person. Develop outside interests.
When I stopped stressing so much and didn't allow school to run my
life, my grades actually improved—and so did my happiness.”
