After passing a vigorous and grueling exam, senior Kaitlin Newman was certified as a level one Veterinary Assistant.

Newman worked in class and during the summer break of 2017 in order to get practice and experience to take her exam.

I had 200 classroom hours and 300 vet clinic hours,” Newman said. “I also had a checklist of skills I had to complete.”

Newman worked under the supervision of veterinarians this summer to achieve her volunteer hours and to help her prepare for the test.

I volunteered at the Buffalo Animal Hospital,” Newman said. “I volunteered under Dr. Russell Jones and Dr. Tanner Self.”
