Laura Bunke, DVM, MPH, is currently a Shelter Medicine Intern at the San Diego Humane Society. A native of WI, she completed her veterinary and public health degrees at the University of Wisconsin - Madison. Her master's project consisted of developing Rabies exposure protocols for the USGS National Wildlife Health Center and working with enteric epidemiologists at the WI Department of Public Health tracing an outbreak of Cyclospora. She is a graduate of the Ferguson Fellowship where she worked at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention developing an ELISA test specific for Vaccina virus. Before attending veterinary school, Dr. Bunke was a Peace Crops volunteer serving in Liberia in 2014. She was evacuated due to the Ebola outbreak in West Africa. Her experiences in the Peace Corps pushed her to pursue a public health and one health tract while in veterinary school. Outside of veterinary medicine, Dr. Bunke enjoys hiking, knitting, and horse back riding. Before COVID she was also an avid traveler.
