Eau Claire Campus Graduate Finds Dream Job in Lone Star State

Samantha Peterson walked across the graduation stage on Oct. 1, 2015. Two days later, she embarked on a two-day road trip that ended in Live Oaks, Texas, – 1,200 miles from campus and her longtime home. Texas was not a random destination. Samantha’s husband, who is a firefighter, moved down to Texas while Sam was in school in spring of 2014, three months after she started the program.

Samantha is a graduate of the Veterinary Technology program here at the Eau Claire campus. She transferred to Globe after three years at a public university. She fell in love with the vet tech program and quickly became a well-known student on campus. Samantha was a student worker at the front desk and also helped out staff members within the department.

As the end to her program neared, Sam really began to shine. She landed an externship at a clinic in Chippewa Falls and was the first student to be accepted at this clinic. She excelled at her externship and began to lay the foundation for her future career.
