Ashley Craig, 2006 Equine Scholars Program graduate, currently enrolled in the Tuskegee University Vet School, came to campus to speak to Equine Scholars about what vet school is REALLY like, as well as tips and traps for the application process.

Ashley Craig graduated from Georgetown College in 2006 with a Bachelor of Science in Biology. After taking two years to work in the horse industry as the breeding manager at a Saddlebred farm in Central Kentucky, Ashley entered veterinary school at Tuskegee University in Alabama. During her time in vet school, Ashley became heavily involved in the Veterinary Business Management Association (VBMA) and the student chapter of American Association of Equine Practitioners(AAEP), eventually getting involved on a national level with both organizations by serving as the National President of the VBMA and as one of two students on the Student Relations Committee for the AAEP. Upon graduation in May of 2012, Ashley will enter into a year-long internship at Hagyard Equine Medical Institute in their Field Care Department. After her internship, she hopes to do a residency in Theriogenology and eventually settle down in Central Kentucky where she will specialize in equine reproduction.

This was an awesome opportunity to talk to an ESP graduate who had applied and been accepted to vet school about her experiences! We are so incredibly proud of everything Ashley had (and will!) accomplish. She has always been a wonderful resource for our Scholars and we are SO happy to have her back in the Bluegrass!
