¡Hola! My name is Sarah Cox and I’m a biology and Spanish double major with a pre-veterinary focus. I’m very passionate about animals and animal husbandry (this summer I was a zookeeper at the MN Zoo) as well as the educational aspect of vet care, and I’m hoping to use my Spanish in order to communicate with a more diverse clientele. On campus, I’m involved in the pre-vet club, track and field, biology TAing, Sigma Delta Pi, Tri Beta, and Alpha Sigma Tau, and last spring I studied abroad in Ecuador on a conservation and ecology program. If you need help with speaking, reading, writing, listening, or just want to talk about study abroad options, feel free to stop by! ¡Nos vemos!
