Mikaela Stanislav

Mikaela is a third-year veterinary student from Cypress who received her undergraduate degree from Texas A&M in animal science. Mikaela grew up riding in English equestrian competitions and playing competitive volleyball. She always had a love for animals, but it wasn’t until her sophomore year of her undergraduate education that she found her passion for veterinary medicine. She plans to focus on mixed-animal medicine so she is able to treat both large and small animals.

Mikaela has a silver Labrador named Terra who is constantly wanting to learn new tricks. She says of Terra, "My favorite trick that she does is when she picks up all her toys and puts them in the basket."

In her free time Mikaela likes to travel, watch Netflix, read, and spend time with friends. This past summer she participated in a study abroad in Italy, studying public health. She is looking forward to her next year of veterinary school.
