Clarissa is a first year veterinary student. She earned her
undergraduate degree in Biology from Texas A&M University. She
has an adopted guinea pig named Percy who loves snuggling. Her
hobbies include playing violin, reading, and practicing Spanish.
After graduating from vet school, Clarissa wants to work in a
bilingual practice that treats small animal and exotic patients.
Clarissa decided in high school that she wanted to be a vet
because she enjoys biology and interacting with owners and their
pets. Her vet school survival tip: “Ask questions. If you don’t
understand something, ask a classmate or the professor. They want
you to succeed!”
