Most veterinary students have the option of receiving clinical training in private practice (called an "externship") as part of the clinical year of training. We have been fortunate enough to host several veterinary student externs over the years. Students will be featured on our website throughout the year as they rotate through our practice.

At For Pet's Sake, students learn about the medical care and husbandry of exotic pets and wildlife that they may not get to work with at veterinary school. 

Brooke Clement is a member of the Class of 2017 at the Louisiana State University School of Veterinary Medicine. She holds a bachelor's degree in Biology, also from LSU. Despite living in Baton Rouge for years, she is originally from Houma, a town located down in the bayous of south Louisiana. She has had an interest in animals, especially wildlife and exotic critters, for as long as she can remember. Her favorite animals are otters. After graduation from veterinary school, Brooke will practice dog, cat, and exotic animal medicine in Pensacola, Florida. Her household includes a spunky Boston terrier mix named Betsy, a friendly cat named Jack, and a bearded dragon named Lars. 

Emma Rich is currently a fourth year veterinary student at the University of Georgia College of Veterinary Medicine (Class of 2019). She also attended UGA for her undergrad and obtained her Bachelor’s Degree in Biological Sciences. As an undergrad, she worked as a veterinary assistant in the Exotics Ward at UGA which is where her passion for exotics and wildlife began. Her favorite animals are rabbits. She has two Lionhead rabbits named Scarlett O’ Hare and Kovu (like the lion from Lion King II). Her hobbies include playing the violin, running, and attending rock concerts.

Kelley Glikin is a fourth year veterinary student from the University of Georgia. Her road to becoming an exotic animal vet began in her undergraduate education. She received her Bachelor's Degree in Avian Biology from UGA. After graduation she completed two zoo keeper internships and began working as a veterinary technician in a small and exotic animal clinic. During vet school, she became a member of the exotics club and even had the opportunity to travel to Costa Rica for a conservation medicine course. She has two pets at home; an albino ring neck dove named Angel, and a golden retriever named Honey. 

Hannah Gordon is a 4th year veterinary student from the University of Georgia. She received her BS in Biology from the University of Tampa, after which she interned at Zoo Atlanta in their Outback Station. Her interest in exotics extends from her desire to work with zoo animals and wildlife conservation efforts. During vet school, she was a member, then a manager of the Wildlife Treatment Crew, who works with the vet school to care for injured wildlife.
