Welcome your New Student Representative - Lukas Wallerich
Lukas Wallerich is our MVMA/MVMF student representative for the 2013-2014 school year. Born and raised in Inver Grove Heights, Lukas has deep roots in the state of Minnesota. His interest in animals began in sixth grade when he got his first dog, a Sheltie named Chester, but his passion for a career in veterinary medicine wasn't fully realized until he started working at Inver Grove Heights Animal Hospital during his senior year at Cretin-Derham Hall.
Lukas went on to graduate in 2011 with a degree in biology from Saint Mary's University of Minnesota. Now entering his third year at the College of Veterinary Medicine, Lukas has aimed his sights on a career in small animal general practice.
Outside of school and work, Lukas is an avid Minnesota sports fan, and when he's not studying he enjoys fishing, golfing, hitting the gym, walking his pit bull mix named Boss, or scooting around town on his moped. He is excited about this opportunity and looks forward to mingling at various MVMA and MVMF functions throughout the school year! To contact Lukas regarding MVMA and MVMF events, membership, scholarships and general informaton, email him at firstname.lastname@example.org
