About the author:
Austin J. Bouck is a post-baccalaureate student at Oregon State University studying microbiology. Previously at OSU he earned a B.S. in animal science with a focus on pre-veterinary medicine and a minor in chemistry. His career goals are to be involved in medical or animal science research.
Outside of school he enjoys playing his saxophone, running triathlons, fishing, camping, video games, and playing Horse Polo.
Employment: Austin began working with animals at age 12 (2002) when he ran his own dog walking/sitting business with his neighbors. At age 14 he began volunteering at the Humane Society of Redmond (OR), a role which developed into a part time/full time job (working around school) in 2005. The entire duration of high school he worked weekends and summers at the shelter, until they parted ways in the summer of 2008. That same summer Austin began work at LaPaw Animal Hospital in Bend, OR as a veterinary assistant. Work at LaPaw continued on school breaks until a more full time position became available at Rivers Edge Pet Medical Center in 2012. Currently he is working part-time analyzing water sediment samples for the College of Forestry at Oregon State University.
