About Treana

Born and raised in Minnesota, I’ve always had a strong love for animals and the outdoors; from the crows in Minneapolis to the moose of the North woods. I studied at the University of Minnesota for both my undergraduate and veterinary studies, with a focus on wildlife and their intersections with public and ecosystem health. I’ve monitored the endangered Great Lakes Piping Plovers, researched wild raptors in rehabilitation, and studied the epidemiology of meningeal worm in white-tailed deer. The reason for pursuing the path of a microbiology residency is my passion for climate justice and emergent infectious diseases. I believe our changing future will continue to be impacted by spillover events to/from wildlife, threatening the global health of animals and people alike. I hope to use the tools of veterinary medicine, research, and disease diagnostics to monitor, mitigate and adapt to these challenges. When not contemplating the end of the world as we know it, I enjoy dabbling in many hobbies: sketching and watercolor painting, reading sci-fi/fantasy, casual bird watching, baking pie, year-round bicycling, and hiking or camping with my favorite person Mose and our two giant mixed breed dogs, Makwa and Addi. The dogs (270lbs total) are bossed around by our sassy 10lb cat, Fishbone the Khajiit, born under my family’s canoe. We are all excited to make Colorado our new home for this next chapter.
