Professional Achievement 2018

DeveauDr. Erin (Casey) Deveau '06 grew up in Corning and attended Corning-Painted Post West High School. She graduated Magna Cum Laude from Ithaca College in 2000, receiving her Bachelor of Science in Applied Psychology (with a concentration in Corporate Communications). She then spent several years as a department supervisor at McMaster-Carr Supply Company in Central NJ before returning to school to pursue her childhood dream of becoming a veterinarian. She attended SUNY Corning Community College from 2005 to 2006, earning an Associate in Science degree in the Mathematics and Sciences program while completing the prerequisite coursework needed to apply to veterinary school. She was granted early acceptance to Tufts University Cummings School of Veterinary Medicine in Massachusetts and earned her Doctor of Veterinary Medicine degree in 2010. She has since practiced veterinary medicine in New Mexico, Connecticut, and Hawaii as a result of her husband’s career taking their family across the country in service to the United States Navy.

When her family settled permanently in Albuquerque, New Mexico in 2016, she successfully opened a branch of the nationally recognized company, Lap of Love Veterinary Hospice. Earlier this year she accepted a position as a Veterinary Medical Officer (Civ) at Kirtland Air Force Base, providing care to the pets of military families serving throughout New Mexico. Dr. Deveau is currently preparing to open her own in-home veterinary hospice service next year to serve the Albuquerque community. In her free time, she has volunteered with several non-profit organizations, including NGO Animal Balance, Maui Humane Society, Oahu SPCA, and Mensa.
