Emily Barton works hard at becoming a large-animal vet

When Emily Barton (15C) came to Berry with plans to be a large-animal vet, she knew it would take great grades – and so much more – to get into vet school. But she was determined to do everything she could to build her future … and she did! She graduated with a GPA near perfection and exceptional experience punctuated by a hands-on leadership position with the Berry College Dairy and two summers working with veterinarians. The ballerina and choreographer also demonstrated her depth and breadth as Berry’s Dance Troupe manager.

Emily applied to two veterinary medicine programs, was accepted to both, and is now doing (very!) well at the University of Georgia. Although focused on her studies, Emily has kept on dancing, even working as choreographer for a UGA dance team. She’s also a volunteer Bible study leader for an Athens church and treasurer of the student chapter of the American Association of Equine Practitioners.
