As a child, Sarvenaz Bagheri found comfort in animals. Now she gives comfort to animals through medical care.

Bagheri is a student in residence doctor of veterinary medicine at Washington State University, specializing in neurology and neurosurgery. Her journey to veterinary medicine began when she immigrated to the U.S. from France with her Iranian parents. Bagheri’s combination of Farsi, French and English languages made talking to people difficult, so she turned to animals.
