Meet the Class of 2024: Haley Momany

Haley Momany will join a small animal general practice after her time at WSU Pullman is done, but her role just might have a large animal touch.

“I hope to incorporate some backyard pet goats into my practice,” she said.

Haley is interested in a career focused on feline medicine, particularly pain and stress management, and end-of-life care.

“I also want to empower owners from diverse socioeconomic backgrounds to make affordable and sustainable care choices,” she said.

Haley has two cats of her own: Mowgli (who was the class of 2024 mascot), a 3-year-old domestic long-hair cat that loves hiking, and Pippin, a 2-year-old tuxedo cat that loves cuddling.

Haley said her time in veterinary school has been enriched by the positive influence of the faculty she’s “had the privilege” to learn from.

“There have been numerous times that professors or clinicians have dedicated their time to revisiting concepts with me or pushed the boundaries of my knowledge so that I can become the best veterinarian I can be,” she said.

Born and raised in Spokane, Washington, Haley enjoys exploring the outdoors by way of hiking, bicycling, backpacking, and cross-country skiing.

She could also eat an entire wheel of Cougar Gold cheese if given the chance.

Fun Fact: Haley has played the viola since she was 5.
