Dr. Jones has recently joined the Department of Animal Science as a full-time lecturer.

She also instructed various courses in animal anatomy, physiology, parasitology and biology at several local universities. Dr. Jones' veterinary expertise makes her a unique addition to the department.
"I found the course to be very interesting, as well as it being extremely useful knowledge to get under your belt. I am already benefiting from the information I have gained, as it comes in very handy to use and understand as a veterinary technician. The workload is large but not unbearable, and the content is not hard to figure out. If you are able to stay on top of your material and reading, you will do well for yourself. I enjoyed this class immensely, more so than other AVS classes because of the medical twist. The knowledge I've gained has continued to be advantageous for me now, and also down the road into my career in veterinary medicine." -Nick
"The information I learned in this class was helpful in the rest of my courses and I was able to retain a lot of the information. I would recommend taking the lab associated with the lecture as well. I was able to apply a lot of what I learned in class during the laboratory session. Be prepared to put time and work into studying." -Elise
