Class Experience

Students will learn about one specific veterinary case per day but will gain understanding of how a veterinarian decides to best help a sick or injured animal.
I am the co-author of the popular book, BE THE VET. The other co-author is my husband, veterinarian Dr. Ed Blesy.  Dr. Ed wrote the veterinary information based upon his twenty + years of veterinary experience while explaining veterinary terminology for student understanding. These cases and treatment are fictionalized based upon one doctor’s experience. It was important for us to write a book where the readers get to feel as if they are part of the experience using the context clues from my stories.

I am also a former certified elementary school teacher and the author of over 25 books for children.
