In honor of Women's History Month, a female role model in veterinary medicine is being spotlighted.
Since Séverine Tasker, DSAM, PhD, DipECVIM FHEA was eight years old, she knew she wanted to be a veterinarian. She began her career studying at Bristol Veterinary school and then began working for a PDSA. She then began a residency in Feline Medicine of Edinburgh where she gained her RCVS Diploma in Small Animal Medicine in 1999. After graduating, she returned to Bristol where she received a PhD and became a Diplomate of the European College of Veterinary Internal Medicine.
After finishing school, Tacker joined the staff at Bristol as a lecturer and eventually rose to senior lecturer, then reader, and finally became a Professor of Feline Medicine in 2016.
In 2018, she accepted a role at Linnaeus as its Chief Medical Officer. However, she remained part-time to continue participating in clinical research and teaching at the University of Bristol.
Along with her leadership positions, she is a member of the Companion Animal Vector Borne Diseases World Forum and the European Advisory Board on Cat Diseases.
