CONGRATULATIONS TO YOUR NEW STUDENT MVMA/MVMF REPRESENTATIVE
We are excited to announce your new MVMA/MVMF Student representative, Elizabeth Schnabel! (She is replacing our 2013-14 representative, Lukas Wallerich)
Elizabeth Schnabel is our MVMA/MVMF student representative for the 2014-2015 school year! Elizabeth grew up in Lino Lakes and is a true Minnesotan. She always knew she wanted to be a veterinarian and spent as much time as she could working with her father, Dr. Bruce Schnabel, at his clinic in Mounds View. Elizabeth went on to earn her degree in biology from the University of Minnesota in Duluth and will be entering her third year at the College of Veterinary Medicine this fall. Though her background is in small animal medicine, she will be tracking mixed and enjoys zoo, wildlife, and especially avian medicine. Outside of school Elizabeth enjoys cheering on the Minnesota Wild, home brewing beer, and bird watching. She currently has two cats and recently adopted an Australian shepherd named Cody. Elizabeth can't wait to meet everyone involved with the MVMA and MVMF and is looking forward to a great year! Welcome Elizabeth!
Elizabeth can be contacted at firstname.lastname@example.org
or by phone at 651-747-7567.
