Margaret Koosmann ’10 grew up on a five-generation beef farm, twenty minutes south of campus. She attended Northland, played sports, and went on to graduate from UW-Madison School of Veterinary Medicine. She now owns Ashland Area Veterinary Clinic, located near campus, and employs four other veterinarians, including her sister Fay ’15, another Northland graduate.
“Attending Northland made me the well-rounded student vet schools were looking for,” she said. “I took biology and chemistry but I also took the humanities—it all helps you think outside the box and as a vet, it’s what we’re doing daily.”
