Meet Our Veterinary Assistant, Grace Detwiler
It was in the four seasons and farmlands of the Midwest that Grace first experienced her love for both the outdoors and for all living things. She grew up riding horses, saving wild creatures, and playing her favorite sports.
It was when she moved to Charlotte before her junior year in high school that her talent on the court really took off and she began to pursue her volleyball goals. This led her to Rochester, NY to play at the collegiate level all while successfully pursuing her degree.
To be closer to home, she transferred to NC State where she earned her bachelor’s degree in Animal Science with a concentration in Veterinary Bioscience. Grace spent the summer following her dream of working remotely on the Uncompaghre Plateau of Colorado at a sustainable ranch where she learned firsthand what it takes to manage, maintain, and herd cattle, spending hours in the saddle, setting fencing, sorting cattle, studying land preservation and improvement, and marketing the meat products of the ranch. Grace is currently working toward her goal of veterinary school doing what she loves...working with large animals, of which cows are her favorite!
Grace currently lives in Raleigh with her cattle dog Ruby Mae and her Great Pyrenese, Willis. She enjoys taking the dogs on hikes, watching movies, reading, painting, and finding new adventures and experiences.
