Wow, 10 years already – here goes nothing…
Shortly after graduation, I ska-daddled out of Utah to attend Colorado State University in Fort Collins, CO. I received my Bachelors in Biology and Zoology, and stayed on at CSU for another 4 years for veterinary school. I graduated in 2010 as a Doctor of Veterinary Medicine.
During this 8-year stay in Fort Collins, I met my college sweetheart, Andrew Nuth during freshman year of undergrad and married him my senior year of veterinary school. Our wedding was on Aug 1, 2009 at the base of beautiful Pikes Peak in Colorado Springs.
After vet school, I spent a year in private practice in Denver completing an internship and getting experience with emergency work, medicine, and surgery (just like what you’d see on ER Vets or ER Vet Interns – only my meltdowns were not broadcast to the nation!!).
This past summer my husband and I moved to our current location in Manhattan, Kansas (insert Huh? here) for me to complete a 3-year residency in Veterinary Diagnostic Imaging and Radiology at Kansas State University Veterinary Medical Teaching Hospital. At the end of this program I’ll be a board-certified (hopefully, assuming I pass all the tests) veterinary radiologist. Yes, I do CAT scans on cats… and dogs… and any other animal that needs it :). My husband has been a journalist, photographer, financial advisor, pilot, and is now a brewer for a local microbrewery here in Kansas – a Jack of all Trades you might call him.
During the summer you may find us camping, canoeing, brewing beer in our garage, taking our spunky Chihuahua, Nova, for a walk, or taking motorcycle camping trips through the Colorado mountains (even made it all way way back to Moab last summer!). My life is a continuous adventure with a lot of great twists and turns so far, and hope to continue at full speed ahead. I will not make it back for the reunion this summer, but I wanted to wish everyone the best of luck with their beautiful new families, careers, and lives. Cheers!
