About Dr. Nancy L. Pugh:

Dr. Nancy Pugh has been teaching in Medaille's Veterinary Technology program since 2003. After graduating from SUNY ESF with a degree in forest biology, she worked on a dairy farm while attaining her teaching certification. She taught high school science (biology, chemistry, and math) at a very small school for four years before applying to veterinary school. She completed her graduate degree at Cornell University, and during that time conducted grant-supported research in Uganda on Trypanosomiasis. After graduating, Dr. Pugh accepted a position at Springville Veterinary Services where she was a large animal vet for 10 years. She co-owns a farm of 80 sheep and three goats and trains Belgian Tervurens dogs to herd. She decided to return to teaching, mostly due to a torn ACL compliments of a beef cow and then a sheep.
