Celia Gelpey

University of Tennessee College of Veterinary Medicine
Class of 2025

I am a dual DVM-MPH candidate at the University of Tennessee. I moved to TN from Boston for my undergraduate education at UT-Martin where I studied agriculture and public health. I chose to pursue a Masters in Public Health in addition to my DVM due to my professional interests in infectious disease and accessibility of both veterinary and human care in rural and other vulnerable communities.

Fun fact about Celia: I attended undergrad on an athletic scholarship! I competed on UT-Martin’s D1 rifle team.
