Cody Dressler calls Manhattan, Kansas home once again. She grew up in Northeast Kansas and completed all veterinary training at Kansas State University. Dr. Dressler pursued advanced training at Charleston Animal Society in Charleston, South Carolina, where she completed a shelter medicine internship. She stayed on at CAS as assistant director of veterinary care as well as providing surgery and relief services at a low-cost general practice. Working at an animal shelter that is partnered with the ASPCA allowed Dr. Dressler to participate in several large-scale incident responses as well as helping manage the busy hurricane season for local shelter animals and pets. After leaving Charleston, Dr. Dressler returned to KSU College of Veterinary Medicine as an assistant clinical professor in the shelter medicine program. She currently provides instruction to fourth year veterinary students in HQHVSN techniques and shelter operations, oversees the internship program at KSU, and assists in teaching first through third year veterinary students in didactic lectures to include basic shelter medicine concepts and disaster response. In addition to her professional work, Dr. Dressler enjoys spending time with her husband, twin boys, and small menagerie of pets.
