KaitlynUptonSMKaitlyn is a veterinary student in the class of 2022 from Corpus Christi, Texas. She graduated with a bachelor’s degree in biology from Texas Christian University in 2017. She has wanted to be veterinarian since she was 4 years old, but instead of saving puppies like she thought, she plans on pursuing a career in zoological medicine.

Kaitlyn loves to laugh, spend time outdoors, hang out with friends, travel, and eat (especially new foods from different countries, though her favorite food is pizza). Dr. Pepper is her favorite drink in the entire world, so if you ever see her carrying a coffee thermos, it is filled with Dr. Pepper, not coffee. She is passionate about her faith and hopes to participate in veterinary missionary work after graduation.
