What does passion in vet med look like? #NextSquad members Dr. Jeff Tinsley, and veterinary students Dana Tsuchida, and Danielle Marie Lancer discuss their very different passions in the field on this month’s episode
Dr. Jeff Tinsley graduated from vet school at Tuskegee University in 2017. He completed a Small Animal Rotating Internship in 2018 at the Blue Pearl of San Antonio, Texas. He stayed in San Antonio for a year of general practice, then moved to Louisville, Kentucky for a one year Dermatology Specialty Internship with Animal Dermatology Clinic. He is currently completing a three-year residency at the ADC of Louisville. Outside of vet med he enjoys supporting local restaurants, teaching crossfit, and running with his dog “Renly.”
Dana Tsuchida is a third-year veterinary student at Oregon State University, Carlson College of Veterinary Medicine. After graduation, she hopes to work with a variety of animals, including exotics and wildlife, by practicing integrative veterinary medicine. She is currently working on her CVA (Certificate of Veterinary Acupuncture) at Chi University. She aims to become a practice owner one day, but hopes to still be involved in international medicine by participating in global service projects. Outside of veterinary medicine, she enjoys many forms of art, including music, dance, and art history. Her motto is to closely work with one animal, one community, and one country at a time.
Danielle Lancer is a second-year veterinary student at the University of Sydney in Australia. She received her Bachelor of Science in Animal Science from California Polytechnic University, Pomona in 2015. For three years, she worked as a veterinary assistant in the oncology and emergency departments at VCA West Coast Emergency and Specialty Animal Hospital. She is on the committee of the Veterinary Society and the wildlife society. Danielle’s future career goals include working with small animals in emergency or oncology.
