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.
"Dr. Jones related real life scenarios to the lecture content which helped me to remember and understand the lectures. Dr. Jones also arranged the class so that she could give individual attention which was much needed due to the diverse background of the students. She gave great care to making sure that students understood the assignment and she gave help as needed. Dr. Jones was always respectful towards the students and the animals." -Gail
