Ambassador spotlight: Emma Sells

Are you considering WSU’s College of Veterinary Medicine? Every other Wednesday we are highlighting our student ambassadors who are available to provide insight into our Doctor of Veterinary Medicine program.

Emma Sells may be from Idaho, but her experience in agriculture came much later in high school when she got involved with 4-H and her local Future Farmers of America chapter. Now, she wants to be a large animal veterinarian.

“I have found if you have the drive to learn something, it is possible for anyone, no matter their background,” Emma said.

With already one year under her belt, Emma is a member of the Agricultural Animal Club and the Theriogenology Club. This summer she will be working at a dairy in Oregon. She is also part of a research project at the WSU Dairy in Pullman.

Emma is from Idaho and was recently asked to serve on the Idaho State Veterinary Medicinal Association as a student delegate.

While Emma is a resident of Idaho where there is no state veterinary education program, WSU’s regional program in veterinary medicine allows her to pay the same tuition as students who live in Washington.

WSU’s emphasis on student health and work-life balance, and the interwoven support system that exists between faculty and students were two of the biggest draws for Emma. To manage her own work-life balance, Emma enjoys reading and wandering to the various outdoor activities the Palouse has to offer.
