Allyson Quigley has traveled to 27 countries and counting, but nothing beats the mountains in Montana on a crisp fall morning. Ally, a Bozeman native and fourth-year veterinary student, plans to go into small animal emergency medicine after graduation. “Animals have and will always be a big part of my life, and I want to ensure that I am one of their biggest advocates in every realm,” she said.
Ally enjoys finding new hikes around the Palouse, and she admits she probably spends a little too much time with her four horses, Ziva, Dancer, Butch Cassidy, and The Sundance Kid. She also has a “very fluffy” cat named George.
When she’s not occupied by hikes and horses, you may be able to find Ally playing giant Jenga at the Paradise Creek Brewery – Trailside Taproom. She’s also an ice cream connoisseur, with Ferdinand’s Ice Cream Shoppe topping her list. She said Panhandle Cone and Coffee is her go-to in Moscow. Come graduation Ally doesn’t have many requests, but there is one – “I’d love to stay in the mountains.”
