As a veterinarian I will have the opportunity to affect changes in health in communities of animals and people with the skill sets I have learned and built upon throughout my graduate studies. I will be a veterinary epidemiologist specializing in sustainable community health utilizing the approach/philosophy/strategy of One Health - hey, now that's pretty amazing!

The main reason I chose UofG was because of my supervisors and project. I wanted to become an expert in oncolytic virotherapy to positively impact the lives of cancer patients. I also chose to complete my graduate studies at UofG because of the excellent facilities at the Ontario Veterinary College. The new Pathobiology building allows me to conduct my research with state of the art equipment such as our flow cytometer and animal facilities.

One of the things that attracted me to Guelph is how connected the sports community is in this beautiful city. If you play any sport, you can very easily find a team or a place where you can practice and/or compete.
