Dr. Peach had always known she wanted to be a veterinarian, and she graduated from MSU’s College of Veterinary Medicine in 2015. While she enjoyed working with cats and dogs, she also became extremely passionate about the “un-owned” animals of the world, particularly free-ranging wildlife.

She has spent time at the Audubon Institute in New Orleans, the Southeastern Cooperative Wildlife Disease Study, and is currently on full time staff at the Wildlife Center of Virginia.
