Veterinary Services is so excited to announce the newest addition to our Veterinary team, Dr. Natalie Houser!!! She recently graduated from Purdue University School of Veterinary Medicine. From an early age, Dr. Natalie knew she wanted to work with animals. Through friends and 4-H, she learned to care for a variety of animals from horses and sheep to rabbits and chickens. In high school, Natalie worked at a boarding facility as well as shadowed at Veterinary Services. Dr. Jill saw great potential in her and offered her a job as a veterinary assistant while she was in college working on her under graduate degree. The knowledge and experience Natalie acquired from Dr. Jill and her incredible staff served as a stepping stone to lead her from college to veterinary school. In 2009, Natalie graduated from IPFW with a Bachelors of Science in Biology and began Purdue University School of Veterinary Medicine that fall. In her free time, Natalie enjoys helping out with 4-H, traveling, horseback riding, painting, taking her dog Basil on hikes, and relaxing with her family at the lake.
