Welcome new post-doc Dr. Meredith Petersen to the Swine Medicine Education Center!
Meredith is from northern Iowa where her family raises beef cattle as well as row crops. She is an Iowa State graduate with her Bachelors in Animal Science (’17) and DVM (’21). She also completed her Masters of Public Health from the University of Iowa in 2021. During veterinary school, Meredith developed and supported an interest in swine medicine as she completed the Swine Veterinary Internship Program where she worked on a sow prolapse project. She also worked on several research projects with SMEC throughout vet school.
Outside of work, Meredith lives in Ankeny, IA with her husband Jacob and enjoys biking, traveling around the Midwest, and spending time outdoors with family. Meredith is looking forward to contributing to SMEC through mentorship of veterinary students and participating in relevant swine research for swine veterinarians and pork producers alike.
