Hi, my name is Aria Stewart I’m originally from Los Angeles, CA. I graduated from Boston University in 2018 with a BA in Biology. Before entering the MCM program I was working full time as a veterinary assistant at a small animal hospital back home in CA. I have loved animals and veterinary medicine for as long as I can remember, but while at university I was exposed to conservation science during my time in a biogeochemistry lab with a focus on conservation projects. My newly found love for conservation and my tried and true passion for helping animals is what led me to the MCM program. I’m eager to use the knowledge I gain during this program to further enhance my ability to aid in the conservation and care of animals all over the world. Outside of school I enjoy going to the gym, exploring fun vegan eateries, and spending a copious amount of time with my 13 year old terrier mix Bandit.
