Samantha Hodgkins

Samantha HodgkinsCornell College of Veterinary Medicine


I grew up in the small town of Gray, Maine where I enjoyed riding horses, playing field hockey, and running track. I earned a bachelor’s degree in Animal Science from the University of Maine and then a master’s degree in Cell and Molecular Biology from the University of Vermont, focusing on immunology. I just completed my first year in the Veterinary College at Cornell University.



In my free time, I love riding horses, running, and listening to music of all types. I also enjoy spending time with my husband and our German Shepard/Lab mix, Harley.

Career Goal:

My interests in the veterinary field are broad: they include small and large animal medicine, public health, and research. Following veterinary school, I will most likely complete an internship, although I am open to many possibilities!
