Dreams Come True

Dr. Christine Hedrick ('01)
Growing up, Christine Hedrick had a dream. Actually, she had three dreams. “I knew I would work with animals,” the 2001 DVM graduate said, “and I wanted to be a teacher.” The third dream? “Many of my elementary school and high school teachers encouraged me to be an author,” Hedrick said. And imagine that, all three dreams came true including writing a book. Into the Fold is a novel that pulls back the curtain on life from a veterinarian’s perspective in a way few people outside the field have understood. The novel’s main character is Carrie, a young and driven veterinarian whose dream career is revealing harsh realities that throw her well-planned future into question.
