Kyle Donnelly, Editor
I am currently a fourth year veterinary student at the University of Florida, where I am also pursuing a Masters of Public Health. I graduated from the University of Florida with a Bachelors of Science in Zoology and a minor in African Studies. I grew up in Florida, London, England, and Milan, Italy. This background gave me a cosmopolitan view of the world and a taste for adventure. I took up acrylic painting in high school and continue to paint regularly.
My interest in painting is part of the reason I like running The Vet Gazette so much. Each edition surprises me by how creative and talented my colleagues are. I am so impressed by both the knowledge and passion my fellow students have for issues facing veterinary medicine, and also by the artwork and hilarious stories I get to publish. The great variety of categories that the editors before me created lets me represent both the professional and slightly-less-professional side of vet students, which I love. My goals for this edition are to keep submissions and readership high- something that the previous editor Melissa Andritz sustained throughout her term. I also want to advocate a more fluid use of the blog, so that you, the students, are less constricted by categories and can submit anything you’d like to share.
I am humbled to serve as your elected editor and I hope you enjoy reading the 49th volume of The Vet Gazette.
