I love golf, working out, snowboarding and food. 

Sean Gadson

I was born and raised in the Bay Area of California. My Undergraduate Degree is in Cellular and Molecular Biology which eventually led me to complete a Masters Degree in Biomedical Sciences. Upon finishing my DMV I plan to pursue an internship in Emergency and Critical Care. 

Ultimately, I aspire to own a practice that provides emergency care to animals in the surrounding community.

Wesley Leung

Born and raised in the San Francisco Bay Area and went to Cal Poly Pomona studying Animal Science. I am glad to be back in Northern California as a veterinary student with particular interests in nutrition and radiology. 

I am always looking to try something new, because you never know where those experiences will take you. 

Peter Ellis

I am a second year vet student from San Diego, California but I made my way to the East Coast to attend Williams College. Go Ephs! My interests with veterinary medicine include surgery, emergency medicine, and practice ownership. I'd love to combine these one day by owning my own specialty practice. 

Bradley Whelchel

I am a second year veterinary student from Riverside, California and studied Biological Science for my Undergraduate education here at UC Davis. I am interested in Cardiology and also have aspirations to own my own practice in the future. 

When I'm not busy with Vet School, I enjoy going to the beach, swimming, hiking, camping, and spending quality time with my friends and family. 

Kelsey Woodson

I am a second year veterinary student from Torrance, California and I studied Animal Science at Cal Poly San Luis Obispo. I am interested in mixed or general practice and perhaps owning my own practice one day. 

In my free time I enjoy spending time with my family and friends, cooking, swimming and watching movies.

Lara Lieberman

I am a first year veterinary student from Chicago, Illinois. I completed my Undergraduate Degree in Business Administration at Washington University in St. Louis. After graduating from college, I worked at a Chicago-based middle-market investment banking firm as a Corporate Finance Analyst. Soon, I realized that my true passion was veterinary medicine. 

VBMA is the perfect club to combine my interests. In my free time, I like to play soccer, cook, and spend time with friends! 

Rachel Weinstein

I'm a first year veterinary student here at Davis. I am originally from Massachusetts, but have spent my post-undergrad life in Colorado and now in California. I am interested in small animal medicine, emergency, and practice ownership in the future. 

Jordan Denitz

My name is Jordan Denitz and I am a BCP Coordinator for the UC Davis VBMA chapter. I am a third year student and am tracking small animal, with an interest in general practice. Prior to entering veterinary school, I spent four years in sales and marketing, and intend on owning a practice one day. I was immediately drawn to VBMA when I entered my first year and have had many valuable experiences since. I see the VBMA as an integral player in our veterinary curriculum, supplementing a business education that we get little of in the classroom, at least in our first few years. I am excited to work with our outstanding executive board to bring many exciting events to our UC Davis community.
