Lisa has been inspired each year by the externship blogs OVC students have shared. She is looking forward to sharing her Western Canadian externship adventure this summer. She will be living in a one-bedroom cabin in the middle of a beef ranch in the Alberta prairies with a beef herd in her front yard and will be helping with the herd and attending rodeos on her weekends off. Lisa is particularly passionate about equine medicine. She is looking forward to lots of hands-on opportunities during her externship this summer including breeding soundness exams on beef bulls, lameness exams and reproduction work with horses, completing basic appointments and surgery with small animal patients, as well as emergency work with all species.
