Jennifer Gander, a 3rd-year veterinary student at the University of Wisconsin-Madison, is one of two recipients of the Friends of Noah 2018 scholarship. These scholarships are made available to veterinary students from Rock County as part of the organization’s educational outreach commitment to the community.
After graduation, Jennifer hopes to start her veterinary career in a small animal or mixed practice; her particular areas of interests are in nutrition and integrative medicine. Jennifer’s husband is also a veterinarian which makes their debt load a large one. Jennifer says “by receiving scholarships like this, it allows me to achieve my goals and focus on becoming the best veterinarian I can become rather than on the financial burden. I thank Friends of Noah for this award and the opportunities it presents for me.”
Jennifer & her husband hope to someday open a mixed animal practice in a location where there is a need within the community. They know how important livestock and companion animals can be to the wellbeing of their human counterparts and hope in this way they can continue to close the gap in veterinary care from small and large animals alike as well as strengthen the community in which they live.
