Meet CTE alumni Kelsey Mosher

Currently, Kelsey is attending a two-year Veterinary Science program at the State University of New York at Delhi and is working as a clerk at Stewart’s in Broadalbin.

Having recently finished a preceptorship at Rood & Riddle Equine Hospital in Saratoga Springs, her goal is to become a veterinary technician, possibly specializing in large animals, including horses, cows, goats and pigs.

She says the Veterinary & Animal Science Program at HFM helped her tremendously, and she learned about different breeds of animals, medical terminology, parasitology, grooming, administering medication and much more. Kelsey says she remains in contact with the instructors at HFM and they are still her mentors.

Kelsey advises students to not think twice about attending HFM.

“You can pick a course that you wouldn’t normally get in high school, and you can even earn college credit,” Kelsey said. “I loved it. It changed what I wanted to pursue.”
