Dr. Michael Avery grew up in Cortland, New York, and attended Cornell University as an undergraduate in biology. After graduating, he worked in ecological research, first with northern flying squirrels, Japanese giant salamanders, and then arctic invertebrate ecology and climate change at Penn State University. Hoping to combine his love of wildlife and interest in medicine, he began veterinary school at Cummings School of Veterinary medicine at Tufts University, graduating in 2018. Outside of the wildlife hospital, Dr. Avery loves to cook, eat, and, carve wood.
