Kristina is a third year veterinary student who
would love to work in a mixed animal practice, particularly one
that sees exotic pets. She received her undergraduate degree in
Zoology from the University of Oklahoma. When she is not studying,
you can find her doing gymnastics for the Texas A&M Gymnastics
team, running, or just hanging out with her dogs, Liesl and Isis,
at the park.
Kristina claims to have a somewhat unconventional route to
veterinary school. "I always wanted to be a vet, but I thought I
was not smart enough or it was too hard" she said, "but after
working at Disney's Animal Kingdom, and changing my major from
Musical Theatre to Zoology, my love for veterinary medicine was
rekindled and I knew that if I did my best I could achieve my dream
of being a vet."
Kristina's school survival tip: "Make friends with as many
people as you can; school should be about helping each other
whenever possible. Also, always have an activity that has nothing
to do with school, so you can de-stress. The best advice I ever
heard was when someone asked me: 'How do you eat an elephant?? One
bite at a time.' Take school one bite, one test, one class at a
time, and it will seem like nothing."
