Jenny Weston
PGDipEdAdmin, PhD, BPhil, BVSc
Jenny has worked as a dairy cattle clinician in private practice and then back at Massey University for about 20 years. She coordinated the final year clinical rotations for several years and was then appointed Academic Dean in the Veterinary School in 2016. She has been a member of VSAAC since 2013 and has participated in seven site visits for AVBC accreditation. Her research interests include a range of infectious diseases of cattle as well as veterinary wellbeing, and the demographics of the veterinary profession in NZ. She is currently supervising PhD student Natalie King who is documenting the career patterns of two cohorts of Massey BVSc graduates and conducting in-depth interviews to explore what factors affected their career decisions. We are very excited about the outcomes from this research as Natalie has contacted and will be interviewing a number of graduates who are no longer working as veterinarians and their personal histories will add valuable perspectives to the research.
