Siyo, my name is Jessica Rose Lambert. I am the daughter of Kimlyn Sneed Lambert and the late Douglas Allen Lambert. I am from the Birdtown community, and a 2014 graduate of Cherokee High School and 2017 graduate of WCU. It has always been my life-long dream of mine to become a veterinarian. I am currently in my second year of attending post-graduate school at North Carolina State University in Raleigh, earning my Doctor of Veterinary Medicine Degree. It is my hope that one day I may be able to come back to the Qualla Boundary and open my own veterinary practice there. I would love to one day be able to help the people on the reservation with their pet care needs. I would also like to encourage EBCI students to consider becoming a Veterinarian, it is a great profession if you love animals like I do. I would like to personally thank the Yogi Crowe Scholarship for helping with my costs of living in Raleigh and for helping to make my dream a reality. They have generously provided funding that makes it possible for graduate students like me to make ends meet while attending school. Thank you again so very much!
