Brief Biography

Anne has grown up in NY, MA, and DE, the latter where her family currently resides. She attended Elizabethtown College in Elizabethtown, PA where she pursued a major in biology. Anne was initially interested in entering veterinary school, but while at Elizabethtown she worked on a research project that encouraged her to pursue both degrees. She is currently enrolled in her third year of the Combined DVM/PhD program at Cornell.

Anne's extracurricular activities include volunteering at Cornell's Wildlife Center, serving as a curriculum committee student representative for the class of 2011, participation in various vet school clubs, as well as being a member of Ultrasound, the vet school acapella group. She also enjoys hiking, swing dancing, singing/karaoke, and spending time with her wonderful husband.
