Dr. Kelly Straka
on behalf of Missouri Veterinary Medical Association

Dr. Kelly Straka completed her Bachelor’s degree in Fisheries and Wildlife Management in 2002. She spent several years as a wildlife biologist for Ducks Unlimited, the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, and a private environmental toxicology laboratory. She was also heavily involved with the Wildlife Rehabilitation Clinic of Minnesota. During this time, Kelly discovered major knowledge gaps between the fields of wildlife, human and ecosystem health. She returned to school at the University of Minnesota’s College of Veterinary Medicine, pursuing her DVM in Interdisciplinary Medicine while simultaneously completing a Master’s degree in Public Health on the epidemiology of bovine tuberculosis.

Kelly completed a four-year traineeship with the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service, working in slaughterhouses across Minnesota. She also worked with free-ranging and research herds of elk and bison in Wyoming, Montana and Colorado, completed externships in wildlife pathology at the University of Georgia, and volunteered at an equine hospital in Morocco. Kelly joined the Missouri Department of Conservation in September 2012 as the first state wildlife veterinarian.
