About the Guest:
Dr. Chris Carpenter knew he wanted to be a veterinarian from a young age and graduated from veterinary school at Auburn University in 1989. Starting his career in the military, he also got his MBA and later went to work for Pfizer (later became Zoetis) in 1998 leading marketing initiatives. In 2001, he entered human pharma including working for Johnson & Johnson. Missing his daughter and his colleagues in veterinary medicine, he became the CEO of the non-profit, Companion Animal Parasite Council (CAPC) and also founded Vet Set Go, a series of programs and resources for middle school students to explore their interest in animal science.
