Veterinary Medicine

Associate Professor, Pathology


Clinical Pathology, Pathology 1, Pathology 2 


Prior to beginning her teaching position in the Cayman Islands in 2022, Dr. White worked for over 3 years as a pathologist for Inotiv (formerly Bolder BioPath. She primarily provided pathology support to investigators working with models of IBD, psoriasis, lupus, and other inflammatory/autoimmune diseases. She continues this collaboration on a limited basis, particularly in the area of IBD research.

Dr. White served for over 10 years as a pathologist, mentor, and assistant professor at the Tri-Institutional Laboratory of Comparative Pathology (Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center, Weill Cornell Medical College, and The Rockefeller University) in New York City, where in addition to providing research support, she participated in training clinical residents, pathology fellows,  and medical students. She also served as an adjunct faculty member at the University of Connecticut during this time. 

She also spent over 4 years as a pathologist for the Wildlife Conservation Society, Bronx Zoo, and is excited to collaborate with them again in regards to Cayman Blue Iguana conservation.  

Dr. White earned her DVM from Louisiana State University in 1993. After a one year internship at the Animal Medical Center in New York, she practiced small animal/exotic clinical medicine.  She began her pathology residency in 2000 at Angell Memorial Animal Hospital and Tufts Veterinary School. She has been a Diplomate of the American College of Veterinary Pathologists since 2003.
