Nabilah Curtis: Future Veterinarian

“Berry has given me so many resources, and I’m excited to share them – for the good of animals and the people who own them.”

Nabilah Curtis (19C) knew Berry College was the place for her the moment she witnessed a sheep being born during a campus visit, realizing “there was no other college where I was going to have this kind of experience on a regular basis.”

Within two weeks of her arrival as a freshman, she was vaccinating sheep and palpating cows. So began an experience-rich undergraduate education culminating in acceptance to her “dream school” – the University of Georgia College of Veterinary Medicine.

Nabilah thrived in Berry’s small classes and labs, gained new perspective on possible career paths through experience in the college’s large-animal facilities and honed valuable laboratory skills studying the effectiveness of the amino acid citrulline in encouraging faster growth rates in sheep. She graduated confident in her preparation and excited to one day pursue a career providing veterinary services in high-need communities.
