Something New Every Day

Dr. Hayley Springer
If you like routine then Hayley Springer’s job wouldn’t be for you. “I really enjoy the variety this position offers me,” Springer said. “Each day can look so very different." Springer is an assistant clinical professor and extension veterinarian at Penn State University. Her primary appointment at Penn State is in Extension where she serves on three different teams – livestock, dairy and vector borne disease. But that’s not all she does. “I have days where I teach undergraduates all day, others when I’m traveling to farms, and still more engrossed in research,” Springer said. “I am the only extension veterinarian at Penn State with small animal experience, so I pick up a lot of companion animal flea, tick and mosquito education.”
