Tiffany Schroeder will always admire the rolling wheat fields of the Palouse, but after graduation, she’s headed back home to fulfill the dream she’s had since she was a child — to be a veterinarian.
“I considered other career paths since veterinary schooling is so long, but nothing seemed as fitting as being a veterinarian,” she said. “I have always had a big heart for animals and caring for them.”
Tiffany plans to work as a general practitioner at a mixed animal practice near her hometown of Kuna, Idaho, outside of Boise.
Back home in southern Idaho, Tiffany, a Boise State alumnus, does outdoor activities in all seasons: swimming, jet skiing, snowmobiling, and, of course, riding her horse, Zach. She also enjoys playing with her two dogs, Jager, a 3-year-old Dachshund mix, and Sooner, a 9-year-old lab.
Tiffany said she enjoyed the hands-on aspects of WSU’s veterinary program.
“The Open Clinical Skills Lab, hands-on club activities, and hands-on electives have really helped me feel confident and ready to take on my career,” she said.
