Main Content

Since she was a young child, Samantha has always loved everything and anything to do with animals. Her favorite shows growing up were the Crocodile Hunter and the Jeff Corwin Experience because it was fascinating to see and learn about all the different creatures on our planet. She was inspired by the compassion and respect that these shows expressed for animals and it convinced her that she wanted to become a veterinarian when she grew up.  One day, while visiting family, she found a bird with its feet stuck in a glue mouse trap. When she saw the bird flapping around helplessly trying to get free, Samantha knew she had to do something to help. Without hesitation, she jumped to the aide of this bird by gently wrapping it in a towel and slowly trying to pry its little feet from the glue. Once it was free, she felt a great sense of satisfaction when the bird was able to fly away. This experience reinforced her desire to pursue veterinary medicine later in life.

After graduating from high school, Samantha initially decided to major in Biology at the University of California Riverside. By the end of her first year, she knew Biology was not the path for her. When Samantha learned about the pre-veterinary program at Pierce College, she swiftly left Riverside and attended her first pre-veterinary courses at Pierce College in the Fall of 2013. She loved all the hands-on experience working with the sheep, goats, chickens, and cattle at the Pierce Farm. Samantha then transferred to Cal Poly Pomona in the fall of 2016 to pursue a bachelor’s degree in Animal Science. She is in her second year at Cal Poly and will be graduating in 2018.

Samantha has had a variety of pets since her childhood—everything from geckos, snakes, dogs, birds, cats, and rabbits. Currently she has 2 miniature schnauzers named Sasha and Ebony, 1 cat named Meow Meow, and a fat rabbit named Charlie. Her favorite pastimes include drawing, hiking, going to the beach, and watching Netflix.
