Student Success: Jalise Zumstein


Jalise Zumstein and her dogs

Jalise Zumstein (’19 DVM), a third-year veterinary student, has always wanted to pursue a career in small animal emergency and critical care. Originally from Washington State, Jalise took two years off after completing her undergraduate degree in biology at WSU to move to Idaho and explore veterinary medicine opportunities within the government. She spent time working at an emergency clinic and with military working dogs on an air force base before applying to veterinary school. As a student at WSU, she spends most her time working with the transfusion team collecting blood from dog and cat donors to help patients in the ICU. When not busy working Jalise is president of the WSU Chapter of the Student American Veterinary Medical Association where she helps plan, organize and carryout events for the students. When she graduates in 2019, she plans to pursue a rotating small animal internship.
