Our next MCM’18 student to introduce is Brittany Champey, “I am from Long Island, New York and received my BS in Biology from Ithaca College. After graduation I traveled to the Limpopo region of South Africa and volunteered at a rehabilitation center for orphaned chacma baboons. There I realized my love for non-human primates. Since then I have been working as a veterinary assistant at Catnip and Carrots Veterinary Hospital for cats, rabbits and other small mammals. My whole life I dreamed about helping wildlife and wanted to become a veterinarian. However, my recent experiences have made me realize there are other ways to help animals with a more well-rounded and dynamic approach. That is what has drawn me to the MCM program. I want to learn about conservation and rehabilitation while also learning how to use that knowledge to affect policy. My ultimate career goal would be to work for an organization that does just that. I want to enact change through education and political action. In my spare time I love to grow vegetables in my garden. My goal is to be as self-sufficient as I can possibly be from a small backyard garden. I also very much enjoy singing, though I very rarely sing in front of anyone but my two cats. They are a mother and daughter named Annie and Scout.”
