Hannah Wubbenhorst

My name is Hannah Wubbenhorst – I’m a proud member of the NCSU CVM Class of 2025. I am originally from Boston, MA, but moved to Durham, NC at a young age. This enabled me to attend NCSU as an in-state student for my undergraduate degree; I graduated in May of 2021 with my B.S. in Animal Science, and minors in Dance and Poultry Science.

I hope to be a veterinarian in production animal and equine medicine, with interests in public health, teaching, and international work. Much of this passion was shaped by my hands-on animal experience during Animal Science classes at NCSU. I grew immensely through the many leadership/teaching opportunities I had as well – from dance and after-school programming to TA-ing and college ambassadorship. I also loved my UK pre-vet study abroad experience – this cemented my passion for veterinary medicine on an international scale as well as gave me great confidence through direct experience.
