Ryane Englar is a 2008 graduate of Cornell University’s College of Veterinary Medicine. She developed a passion for teaching veterinary medicine early on in her professional career, and returned to Cornell in 2009 as a Robert Kirk Practitioner-in-Residence to mentor students in the Community Practice Service (CPS). Her 3+ year commitment to CPS cemented her desire to make a full-time transition to teaching, and she is excited to make her debut in academia as an Instructor within the very service that captured her heart.
Teaching within the realm of the Community Practice Service "has granted me the opportunity to give back to the students who are the true heart of the profession, in coaching them through some of their 'firsts,' cheering them onward and upward as they experience that first taste of victory, and sharing in their hopes, dreams, fears, and tears shed along the way. Every day that I am able to give back is a good day."
Ryane also joined Cornell's Feline Health Center as a consultant in May 2011 and is a sporadic contributor to Cornell’s monthly newsletter, CatWatch. Her special interests are feline medicine and end-of-life palliative care. When she is not at work in the clinic, she enjoys looking after her own two Tonkinese cats, Bailey and Nina.
