    Elise Frazier
    Veterinary Clinical Skills    I     Veterinary Medical Applications
    Born and raised in Texas, Mrs. Frazier graduated from UTA with a B.S. in Biology. After college, she pursued a career as a zookeeper, working closely with giraffes, tigers, and several other exotic species. She enjoyed providing enrichment and training for the animals, but loved spending time in the hospital, where she was introduced to veterinary medicine. She has been in veterinary medicine since and lives for the dynamic that the clinic provides. She is a lifelong learner and is always looking for opportunities to try something new, whether it be a new language or skill. She enjoys going to plays & shows, and is especially obsessed with Cirque du Soleil. When she isn't working she loves spending time with her husband, daughter, and their animals!
