Dr. Kevin Shimel ('96)
If there was ever a Renaissance man in this day and age, Kevin Shimel would be that individual. He has worked as an analytical research and development chemist, prefers cats as patients but not only shows dogs and is an AKC approved judge. He has also bred Borzoi for over 40 years. He loves to travel and has visited over two-thirds of the globe. Photography is a passion. His works have appeared in gallery exhibits in SOHO and his own gallery in Vermont. "I have always felt the world is an experience waiting to be yours," Shimel said. "As a kid I read encyclopedias, not novels. I was always interested in veterinary medicine and animals and the natural world."
