Carissa is a hard worker, and quickly expressed her interest in helping lead our lab area! She graduated from Elms college majoring in biology, minoring in bioethics, and a masters degree in biomedical science.
This last year she has surrounded herself with hands on animal experience, working toward her career in veterinary medicine. Carissa grew up around many kinds of animals including dogs, cats, fish, rabbits, geckos, snakes and many more! She currently has two energetic and loving pups, a Brittany Spaniel named Enzo and an American Bully named Rhaegar. This past January she was lucky enough to travel abroad with Nuñoa Project Peru, on a mission to work with the impoverished townspeople and their alpaca herds to improve quality of life for both. Her hobbies outside of work include playing soccer and enjoying the outdoors.
