Meet Danielle Carnahan, MCM’19, “My name is Danielle Carnahan and I am from Seattle, Washington. I graduated from Washington State University in May of 2018 with a degree in animal sciences and a minor in French. Before entering the MCM program I was a full-time college student while gaining experience working with and around animals. During college, I volunteered at the WSU veterinary hospital in the wildlife and exotics ward and worked as an intern and volunteer at the Cougar Mountain Zoo. I also traveled to Thailand where I got to work in an elephant sanctuary assisting with veterinary care and conservation. This experience solidified my desire to conserve wildlife and continue working with elephants. I was interested in MCM because of the unique and specialized nature of the program. With my focus in rescuing and conserving endangered wildlife, the concentration and coursework of MCM seemed like a great fit for me to continue my education. I aspire to work internationally conserving wild species and rescuing animals from harmful tourism, poaching and other industries exploiting animals. Outside of school, I enjoy being outside doing activities such as skiing, hiking and working out. I also love traveling and hanging out with my Australian shepherd, Tia.”
