2014 Scholarship Recipient: Matthew Cook

Matthew Cook

I am currently a 3rd year veterinary student at the University of Pennsylvania School of Veterinary Medicine. A native of Freehold, NJ, I grew up with a passion for working with animals. I graduated from the Academy of Allied Health and Science in Neptune, NJ and went on to graduate magna cum laude from Loyola University Maryland in 2012. While in veterinary school, I conducted research on swine vocalization patterns and was selected to present results of that work at the 2013 American Association of Swine Veterinarians Annual Conference in Dallas, Texas. I also was selected for a position to work at the Vet and Agric Consultants Clinic in Gaborone, Botswana where I had the opportunity to gain international experience working with small animals and wildlife in Africa. While in school, I have served as the president of the Student Veterinary Emergency and Critical Care Club. When not in class, I work part time as a veterinary technician at an emergency clinic in Lakewood, New Jersey.  After graduating from veterinary school, I hope to complete and internship and residency and work towards a career in small animal emergency and critical care. Aside from veterinary school, I enjoy traveling, reading, supporting the New York Yankees and Giants, and hanging out with my pure bred Bull Mastiff, Lola. I am honored and thankful for the APC's generous gift, help lessening my financial burden, and nod of confidence. Any time I see a pointer in practice, I will remember this honor and gift.
