My name is Brianna Blunck and I am from Coxsackie (laugh at the name if you will), New York. I graduated from Fordham University in 2017 with a degree in Biological Sciences after four years of playing on their Division 1 women’s soccer team. At home I have a whippador pup, two cats, and Paxton – the dog pictured with me. Paxton was diagnosed with localized mast cell tumor and as an assistant on the oncology team at Upstate Veterinary Specialties, I helped with his chemotherapy administration and recently celebrated his chemotherapy graduation! I plan to go to vet school, with a specific interest in wildlife, which is why I have enrolled in the MCM program. I am excited to learn more about this necessary emerging field, but also imagine myself doing some stress vegan baking to help get by.
