Faculty of the Quarter: Dr. Cory Romans

Having only been an instructor at Globe University-Madison East for three quarters, Dr. Cory Romans was surprised when she was chosen as this quarter’s Faculty of the Quarter. Cory is a veterinary technology instructor and shared, “Being a new faculty member here, I constantly look up to my peers. They inspire me to continue to develop as an instructor and keep improving my course materials for our students.” 

Cory knew she wanted to be a veterinarian from a very young age, “When I was about 6 or 7 years old, we had a bichon puppy that became ill with Vet Tech Instructorparvovirus. Our family veterinarian at that time was unable to save him. I remember feeling helpless and that I wanted to know how to help animals. Throughout my life, my interest in the profession has really developed with a realization and appreciation for the role of veterinary medicine and the human-animal bond.”

Cory graduated in 2006 from Iowa State College of Veterinary Medicine with a dual DVM/MS degree. Her MS degree is in veterinary surgery and pain management. She completed a small animal internship at Mississippi State University and then went into clinical practice. For the past 6+ years, Cory has been practicing as an Emergency Veterinarian and really enjoys this specialty. 

Cory likes working at Globe and said, “I really enjoy our team here as everyone is so supportive, encouraging, helpful and cheerful. It’s a great work environment.”

“Being an instructor allows me to teach to students that share the same level of enthusiasm for veterinary medicine as I do,” Cory said.

Veterinary Technology Executive Program Chair Heather Wipijewski told us, “Dr. Romans has been an integral part of the veterinary technology program since she started. Her positive attitude and enthusiasm are always evident. She is always willing to help out her fellow instructors and takes time to explain things thoroughly to students. We are proud to have Dr. Romans on our team.”
