Rebecca received her bachelor’s degree in Child and Family Studies from Louisiana State University in May of 2015. After receiving her BS, Rebecca pursued her Master of Science in Social Work while at the University of Tennessee, Knoxville. Rebecca completed the VSW-CP and graduated with her MSSW in May of 2017.
Rebecca chose to attend the University of Tennessee because of her interest in the Veterinary Social Work Certificate Program. Her interest in veterinary social work began to take shape early on in high school while volunteering at an animal shelter. During undergrad, her interest developed into passion while working at an animal hospital and interning at a Hippotherapy center. It was during this time that Rebecca decided that she was going to pursue a career in Veterinary Social Work. While at the University of Tennessee, Rebecca interned with the VSW program at the UT College of Veterinary Medicine. She was also the VSW-CP graduate assistant for the 2016-2017 academic year.
