Cidra joined SVA in 2019 as a veterinary assistant after earning a BA in Cultural Anthropology and Comparative Literature. She is interested in emergency medicine for pets and animal behavior and training. When she’s not at work she lives as an artist, farmer, and avid book-reader. The thing that motivates her every day is a love of learning and says “if I can hug dogs while I learn, that’s a huge bonus!” We all agree.
