Two new professors have recently joined Wilson’s Veterinary Nursing faculty. One of these professors is Dr. Carolyn Tatsch, who started teaching at Wilson in the spring semester of 2022.
Dr. Tatsch currently teaches Veterinary Surgery, Vet Anatomy and Physiology, and Small Animal Nutrition and Non-Infectious Disease. When asked about the material and how classes have gone, she said “I love the material I’m teaching, and really enjoy when students do too!”
Dr. Tatsch holds a Bachelor of Science in Animal Science from the University of Delaware. She also attended Ross University School of Veterinary Medicine, where she served as a teaching assistant for Small Animal Anatomy and Animal Nutrition.
After her clinical year at the University at Pennsylvania she began working as a Small Animal Veterinarian in the New York metropolitan area.
Dr. Tatsch discovered Wilson online. She was interested in the Veterinary Nursing program, and the opportunity to work with animals on campus.
When asked about her favorite part of working at Wilson, she says, “My co-workers. They are a constant source of support and mentorship as I transition to working in academia, and the students. I enjoy interacting with students and encouraging them to remain curious about the world around them.”
While discussing her hobbies, Dr. Tatsch mentioned that she enjoys video games (including streaming on Twitch) and nail art. She also discussed her professional interests, including Feline Medicine, Dentistry, and practicing high-quality medicine.
She added that her favorite animal varies but, “Today it is kittens.”
Finally, I asked Dr. Tatsch about which classes were difficult for her in college and veterinary school, and she shared that she struggled with Physics and Large Animal Surgery.
Welcome to Wilson, Dr. Tatsch!
