Mara Supan '07 Opens Mobile, Holistic Veterinary Practice in Klamath County
Mara Supan '07 started a mobile holistic veterinary practice called Cureanima. The practice, which serves Klamath County, Oregon, and the Rogue Valley focuses on integrative medicine incorporating western medical skills with traditional Chinese veterinary medicine. Veterinary acupuncture promotes healing in pets' bodies by increasing blood flow and changing tissue signals.
Mara grew up in the Rogue Valley, graduated with a bachelor's degree in biology from Pacific in 2007, and then earned her Doctor of Veterinary Medicine from Oregon State University in 2011. While attending veterinary school, she was involved with the Integrative Veterinary Medicine Club, where she began exploring alternative therapies including veterinary acupuncture.
