Dr. Nancy Cowardin
One of Dr. Nancy Cowardin’s earliest memories involves a deep love of animals—she recalls going to pick out a new kitten when she was only three years old. Hurricane quickly became her best friend in the world, and the pair grew up together until Dr. Cowardin headed off to college. By the time she had started her studies in science and biology, she knew that she wanted to use her skills to foster the same kinds of relationships that she shared with her beloved cat! Now, Dr. Cowardin gets to do just that every day as the owner of Companions Animal Hospital.
Dr. Alison Johnson
Dr. Alison Johnson has been a scientist and an educator all of her adult life—she taught college students as a chemistry professor for many years. She has also had an intense love for the earth’s creatures for as long as she can remember! What better way to combine her experience in science and education with her adoration of pets, Dr. Johnson mused, than by becoming a veterinarian?
