Danielle Schuld Elected to WVMA Executive Board
Student Representative, iDanielle Schuld grew up in Portage, Wis. and attended the University of Wisconsin – Madison for her undergraduate degree. Her interest in veterinary medicine began by shadowing veterinarians on the weekend.
"I loved meeting all of the animals and their owners and enjoyed forming relationships with both," says Schuld. "This love for animals, science and teaching others pointed me towards veterinary medicine."
Going into her second year of veterinary medical school, Schuld is excited to become a liaison between the University of Wisconsin School of Veterinary Medicine and the WVMA.
"My membership provides an incredible opportunity to network with veterinarians, get hands on experience during convention and externships and to connect with industry professionals," she says. "It means a lot to be a part of an organization that promotes lifelong learning, mentorship, friendship and will fight politically for our profession."
During this two year position, Schuld is excited to help offer more opportunities for her fellow veterinary students.
"I hope to continue to develop more opportunities for students to see the many aspects of veterinary medicine and give them chances to network with private practitioners as well as professionals in industry. The saying goes 'it's not what you know but who you know,' and the WVMA can provide the 'who' for students," she says. "I want to continue to promote WVMA involvement in reducing student debt as well as connect students with enthusiastic, positive mentors."
Along with her new position on the WVMA Executive Board, Schuld is one of two AVMA representatives for the University of Wisconsin School of Veterinary Medicine and is active in the Equine and Bovine Clubs. Outside of school, she is a member of the Millennium Choir at her church, enjoys rock climbing and other outdoor activities.
After graduation, Schuld plans on going into large animal medicine while incorporating her interest of acupuncture.Last modified on
