Dr. Goodrich is a 2008 graduate of the College of Veterinary Medicine at Cornell, and a 2004 Animal Science graduate of the Cornell College of Agriculture and Life Sciences. She practiced veterinary medicine in a mixed animal practice in Cortland, NY for 5 years. During that time she provided emergency surgery and routine veterinary care to a variety of species including cattle, horses, some small ruminants and dogs and cats with the majority of her time being allotted to dairy production medicine. Following this experience, she worked at the Day Hollow Animal Hospital in Owego, NY where she further strengthened her small animal skills and continued her interest in dairy medicine as well. She joined Cornell’s Animal Health Diagnostic Center in December of 2013 as a member of the veterinary support services team. In this capacity, she works to provide diagnostic support to veterinarians in their daily encounters with disease outbreaks, control and surveillance. She also provides educational outreach to practicing veterinarians in a variety of forms. She teaches courses in the veterinary curriculum to third and fourth year students about diagnostics as well as veterinary care and management issues of the domestic and international donkey--one of her favorite species.
