No Place Like Home

Dr. Adam Hansen (’10)
As long as Adam Hansen could remember, he would job shadow his father, Dr. Donald C. Hansen (’73). He remembers walking from school to the Shelby Vet Clinic after classes were done for the day. If there was a call in the night, Adam would tag along with his dad. Summer, school breaks, holidays Adam was at the clinic. Even when he was a veterinary student, he would make the two-hour journey back home from Ames. It shouldn’t come as a surprise that Adam joined the practice after graduation and has remained in his hometown. “I graduated on a Saturday, took Monday off, and then started work right away,” he said. He hasn't left and is now owner of the clinic after his father retired in 2019.
