“The impact on our students and teaching was enormous,” said Zimmel. “During the sudden switch to online learning when the pandemic broke out in the spring of 2020, Dr. House handled all of the logistics and communications associated with this transition. Her leadership ensured that the teaching component of our college mission continued despite these challenges and that the students and our faculty had the necessary resources. “

In her new role, House will continue to oversee the entire office, including teaching and other activities related to the college’s DVM professional program and college admission. She will work closely with Zimmel and her assistant deans in clinical service and research to address day-to-day operational issues as well as long-term strategies.

She also led the college’s hands-on Equine Clerkship program, which enables veterinary students to undergo clinical rotation with resident physicians from 2010 to 2020. Her clinical interests include neonatology, infectious diseases, preventive medicine, and animal welfare.

A 2001 graduate of Tufts University’s Cummings School of Veterinary Medicine, House completed an internship and residency in internal medicine in large animals at the University of Georgia Veterinary Teaching Hospital prior to joining UF.
