Dr. Smith completed 3 years of a Biomedical Science program at Texas A&M prior to admission to the DVM program at Texas A&M's College of Veterinary Medicine. She graduated with honors in May 1994. Her interest in internal medicine and oncology had been piqued as a senior veterinary student, and during her internship at the University of Illinois, she decided to pursue residency training in both specialties, and joined Auburn University's program in 1995. She was certified in both internal medicine and oncology in May 2000. While pusuing her residency training, she also completed requirements for a Master's degree in Biomedical Sciences, and received her diploma in December 2001. She served on the Auburn University faculty as an assistant Clinical Professor from 1999-2000, an Assistant Professor from 2000-2005, and is currently an Associate Professor. She coordinates Auburn University's oncology program, which focuses on a multidisciplinary team approach to each patient.
