Aminata (Mina) Kalley, DVM
My name is Aminata Kalley and I am in my first year of the Veterinary Public Health Residency. I was born and raised in Philadelphia, PA and developed a strong passion for agriculture from a young age. I obtained my B.S. in Animal and Poultry Sciences from Virginia Tech in 2014 and my Doctor of Veterinary Medicine degree from the University of Missouri in 2018. Upon completion of my DVM degree, I began my career at a Large Animal Ambulatory practice in central Virginia. After one year in private practice, I transitioned to a position working for the Department of Homeland Security as a Clinical Veterinarian for research livestock housed at Plum Island Animal Disease Center. Upon completion of the VPH Residency, I hope to pursue a career working with transboundary animal diseases of livestock. When I am not working, I enjoy painting, reading, running, and traveling to visit family.
