Dr. Howard wears many hats in the college of veterinary medicine. She is a leader in all aspects of her involvement. Despite her many responsibilities, Dr. Howard always prioritizes student wellbeing. She acts as an advocate, an advisor, and (most importantly) a calming presence for students at the veterinary college. She has been essential to the success of an intense and strenuous semester for students and the college would not be as welcoming, inclusive, or caring without her. Dr. Howard’s hard work continues to make me feel valued and, for that, I am extremely grateful.
