Brief Biographical Sketch:

Hello!
My name is Morgan Shelton, and I am senior here at Cornell, majoring in Animal Science and minoring in Biomedical Sciences. After graduating, I will be going to the Ohio State College of Veterinary Medicine to become a veterinarian that does mixed animal (primarily exotics) medicine and is involved with veterinary pathology research. I've loved all types of animals from a young age, but I have a deep love and respect for reptiles. I have done many outreach events introducing and teaching people about these really awesome animals! Besides classes and working in a veterinary pathology lab, I love listening to/playing music, learning new styles of dance, and cooking.
