Tara L. Woyton LVT, CVT, BS, MS

  • Tara began her career in veterinary medicine with Springville Veterinary Services as a large animal technician and taught large animal labs at Medaille College. She used her large animal experience to obtain a position with the United States Department of Agriculture in the Animal Plant Health Inspection Services, Veterinary Services division. Following along with their mission statement ‘Keeping America’s Livestock Healthy,' Tara has trained in Foreign Animal Disease with the University of Tennessee Knoxville, performed extensive work in zoonotic disease surveillance and specializes in necropsy. Along with her regular duties she served as the Veterinary Service Tribal Liaison, working with federally recognized Tribes in New York State to keep their livestock healthy. Tara also served as the chair of the Civil Rights Committee for her division and in 2009 received the Administrator’s Civil Rights award for her work. In 2010, Tara decided to return to teaching, and she obtained her M.S. in Deaf Education from Canisius College. Tara now teaches full time at Medaille and serves Saint Mary’s School for the Deaf when she can. She is also a supporter of Deaf Adult Services in Buffalo and is working on obtaining her interpreting certification in American Sign Language
