Originally from Ajax, Ontario, Kristen studied Animal Biology at the University of Guelph before starting the DVM program in 2015. Her interest in international veterinary medicine and passion for wildlife drew her to Australia for her externship. She’ll be completing her externship at Berry Veterinary Clinic, a large mixed animal practice about two hours south of Sydney. Kristen has been following the Externship Blog Project since she was an undergrad. She loved reading about students’ externship experiences and thinks reading the blogs is a great opportunity for those interested in veterinary medicine to get a glimpse of what the profession is really like.
