Christie Clarke

Veterinary Assistant
I was introduced to exotics at a young age, and that's what kickstarted a love for animals that I wanted to pursue in the future. In June of 2018, I graduated from the Vet Assistant program at Maritime Business College and joined Companion Animal Hospital in December 2020. The best part of my job is working with my lovely coworkers and meeting all the furry faces that come into our clinic. A fun fact about me is that I love horror movies!


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:
