Faculty Member of the Quarter: Resident Veterinarian Megan Jordan

She has a laugh that is loud and recognizable to all of the students in the veterinary technology program, and her personality is one that makes learning fun in the classroom. It’s no wonder Resident Veterinarian Megan Jordan was chosen as Faculty Member of the Quarter.

When the Globe University-Madison East leadership team stopped by during one of Megan’s classes to tell her she was chosen as the Faculty Member of the Quarter, she was very surprised and said she even teared up a little.

When asked why she choose to be a veterinarian, Megan said, “When I was 19, my cat went to get neutered and declawed. They sent him home without pain meds and he was in a lot of pain. I vowed to help keep animals pain free.”

After that, Megan earned her Associate in Applied Science Degree from Highland Community College and went on to receive her Bachelor in Liberal Arts and Bachelor in Animal Science from the University of Illinois and then received her Doctor of Veterinary Medicine degree.

Megan began working for Globe University in April of 2011 as an adjunct instructor then moved into the Resident Veterinarian position that October. She enjoys educating clients as well as teaching students. Megan said, “I have been able to work with a great group of veterinary professionals and discover the passion I have for teaching.”

What would Megan do if she could do anything else in the world? Be a Broadway musical star, of course! “I love to sing and love musicals,” Megan said. She even starred in a community theater production of “The Wizard of Oz” earlier this summer.

“Megan always goes above and beyond in her job,” said Veterinary Technology Program Chair Heather Wipijewski.  “She shows her passion for teaching in the classroom every day, coming up with new creative ideas to engage students and ensure they receive a quality education. Megan always helps out her fellow instructors, whether it’s words of wisdom or covering a class. She is fun, always has a smile on her face, and is truly dedicated to the veterinary profession.”
