Elena Archer

My name is Elena Archer and I will be the 2020-2021 APVMA Symposium Chair! I am a sophomore majoring in Veterinary and Biomedical Sciences. I am from Pace, Florida, which is near Pensacola. Yes, I know I am crazy for wanting to go somewhere colder for college. This is my second year as a member of Pre-Vet Club and my first year as an officer on the executive board. Last year, I was on the Pre-Vet Symposium Committee and even though we did not get to have the event, I know it would have been amazing. At Penn State, I enjoy going to football and ice hockey games. I also like to ice skate in my free time over at the Pegula Ice Arena. Over the summer, I worked full-time as a veterinary assistant at a local small animal clinic. After graduation, I plan on attending Veterinary School and hopefully becoming an Army Veterinarian. As the APVMA Symposium Chair, I am responsible for organizing the club's trip to the 2021 APVMA Symposium. I also will be representing the Penn State Pre-Vet Club this year as an APVMA delegate, which will involve communicating and working with the APVMA executive board. If you have any questions or concerns about the APVMA or the trip feel free to contact me!
