I am a SAIM diplomate and work as a Professor of Veterinary Medicine and Surgery (that is my official title, but I have nothing to do with cutting animals!) at the University of Missouri. I am a two time graduate (BS and DVM) of the University of Tennessee (Go Vols!), and spent considerable training time at North Carolina State University (internship, residency, PhD, post-doctoral fellowship). I am a wife and mother of two young adults, and have lots and lots of pets in the house and in the barn.
