About Me

Gabby Pagana


Hello world my name is Gabby Pagana! I am a sophomore at The Pennsylvania State University studying Animal Sciences. For the spring semester I am traveling abroad in Australia for 5 weeks in a program for Animal Science students at Penn State.

I have always had a love for medicine and animals so I have decided that I want to be a veterinarian. I am involved in many clubs and activities to help me get to my ultimate goal of vet school. I am the social chair for the Poultry Science club, a member of the Pre-Vet club, and an Undergraduate Research Technician in the Animal Science Department working with solely with poultry. I am also a goalie and Director of Alumni Relations for the Penn State Field Hockey Club Team. Although it does not pertain to animals it is something that I love and have been playing since I was 10 years old.

Penn State is my life, but I also love to spend time at home. I enjoy spending time with family, friends and my animals. Every chance I get, I go to my internship at a local veterinarian to learn the ropes to further my experiences with an animal doctor. I am a “mother” to 5 animals. I own two cats, Peaches and Petie, who have exceeded their 9 lives at ages 18 and 14 years old. My three dogs rule the house. Andi is an 8 year old Cock-a-poo, Tank is a 3 year old Olde English Bulldog, and Stella is a 2 year old English Bulldog.

After my 5 week excursion, I will be interning at the Lehigh Valley Zoo as an Conservation Education Intern from February 18 until the beginning of June. The zoo is in Schnecksville, Pennsylvania which is a little bit of a drive for me from home and from school so I will just be racking up the miles! I will still be involved at Penn State in my clubs and working in the laboratory. Recently, I was accepted to head a research project called “Scale Up: Pipe Ventilation in Poultry Houses”. This project includes a model project named “Model: Pipe Ventilation in Poultry Houses”. The model will start in the spring time when I come back from Australia involving a small 1 X 10 foot house, broiler chicks, and insertable pipes. The scale up project will start once the model is a success, most likely in the summer time when the weather is the hottest. I am extremely excited to be running this project to benefit bird health and comfort from gases and heat stress.
