Ivy Bergquist

Ivy completed her B.S. in Animal Sciences/Pre-Veterinary Medicine from the University of Massachusetts in 1994. After spending some time working as a veterinary technician she was given an opportunity to explore the field of Laboratory Animal Research. Since that time I have worked to continue acquiring skills and certifications. Currently she is certified through AALAS at the LATg level and continue to earn credits to remain a registered participant.
