Candace McGill

Veterinary Assistant
I graduated from the Lawrence College Veterinary Assistant program in 2005. Growing up I always knew I wanted to work with animals, it was a dream which I can now say I’ve achieved. I am especially interested in feline medicine. My favourite part about my job is being surrounded by animals all day long and getting unlimited licks (aka kisses). A fun fact about myself is that I love photography; I often take pictures for family and friends as a hobby.


Black History & Veterinary Medicine - Dr. Alfreda Johnson Webb (1923-1992)

Today's medical historian of colour is Dr. Alfreda Johnson Webb. Dr. Webb graduated with her DVM with our previous blog star Dr. Hinton, as one of the first female African American veterinarians in the US. Both of these great women were also the first black members of the Women’s Veterinary Medicine Association. She also founded the School of Veterinary Medicine of North Carolina State University. In 1971, she became the first African American woman in the North Carolina General Assembly, serving on many committees including serving as the Chairperson of Minority Affairs, president of the Democratic Women of NC, and a member of the NC Council on Sickle Cell Syndrome.   So you can see despite so many obstacles Dr. Webb was still able to make history and so can we!   Written by: Ashley G, VT   Resources:
