Meet Carolina Equine Hospital’s Newest Veterinary Intern, Dr. Caroline Moore!
Every year, Carolina Equine Hospital (CEH) welcomes new veterinary interns to join the team for a year. Our interns are fully-licensed veterinarians and are pursuing an extra year of experience and mentorship before they move on to other positions. Interns are a great addition to our team, and while we miss them once they finish out the year with us, we know they are heading off to go make a difference in the lives of new clients and their animals.
Let’s get to know Dr. Moore a little better. We provided her with a brief Q&A to learn more about her background and interests. Here were her responses.
Ashley – Where are you from, and where do you live now?
CM- I am from Cincinnati, Ohio- now I live in Reidsville.
A- Where did you attend vet school?
CM- Ohio State University
A- What do you like to do in your free time?
CM- I love being outside- hiking, running, and hiking a soccer ball around with friends. And laughing- always down for a good prank or cheesy Dad joke.
A- What is your favorite food?
CM- I could eat oatmeal for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. Also I loooooove pad thai.
A – Please tell us an interesting fact about you
