Valerie Ordonez is a third-year veterinary student attending the Western University of Health Science. She is a proud member of the Latinx community and has worked rigorously in establishing an online platform for them on Instagram at @latinx.vet.gang. Through this platform, she hopes to explore and uplift each Latinx student in their journey to becoming a veterinarian. She loves bringing larger platforms together to make an impact within the field. Valerie’s dream is to become a small animal practice owner, encouraging further diversity and inclusivity to the community.
