North Carolina State University College of Veterinary Medicine graduate Megan Inskeep has been named Young Swine Veterinarian of the Year by the American Association of Swine Veterinarians.
Dr. Inskeep, CVM Class of 2010, was honored at the 46th Annual Meeting of the American Association of Swine Veterinarians (AASV) in Orlando, FL. The award is given annually to an AASV member who is five or fewer years into a post-graduation career and who is already demonstrating AASV ideals of exemplary service and proficiency.
Inskeep’s interest in animals began on her grandparents’ dairy farm and through visiting pig farms with her veterinarian father Dr. Gene Nemechek. She also worked in a small animal clinic during high school and spent two summers on sow farms gaining experience in farrowing and gestation barns.
As an animal science undergraduate in the NC State College of Agriculture and Life Sciences, Inskeep became a Food Animal Scholar and was accepted into the College of Veterinary Medicine through the joint mentoring program. She was active in both the Swine Club and the Bovine Club during her four years at the CVM, serving as president of the swine club in her third year. She received the Swine Proficiency Award at the conclusion of her fourth year.
