Kailey KestnerKailey is a second-year veterinary student from Austin. She received her undergraduate degree from Texas A&M in biomedical sciences in 2016. She has always had a passion for animals and her dreams to become a veterinarian were solidified when she joined her high school FFA program and took her first pre-veterinary courses. During her time as an undergraduate, she enjoyed volunteering at Aggieland Humane Society, as well as working at a veterinary hospital in Dripping Springs on her summer and holiday breaks. Her plans are to work in a mixed-animal hospital when she graduates.

Kailey’s veterinary school survival tip is to enjoy life while you are in school! Even when classes get tough and it seems like you are overwhelmed, life is still continuing outside of vet school, so don’t let it pass you up! Spend as much time with your family and friends as possible, even if that means hanging out while you review flash cards.
