Dr. Charlotte Newell followed a divergent path to her career as a veterinarian. She began her education at the University of Massachusetts Amherst, chose to take a break from school to milk cows and work with horses, later wandered back indoors as a research technician, and then returned to school at the University of Massachusetts Boston. While applying to veterinary schools, she spent time as a small animal veterinary technician in a private practice and later at Angell Memorial Animal Hospital. Dr. Newell attended the Tufts University School of Veterinary Medicine and graduated in 1987.
Dr. Newell is the faculty chair of the equine studies program and serves as an associate professor, teaching veterinary technology and veterinary science, in particular to students enrolled in the pre-veterinary and equine studies programs.
When she is not teaching, Dr. Newell does solo mixed ambulatory practice, primarily large animal/equine. She is also interested in and has pursued continuing education in veterinary acupuncture and herbal medicine. Dr. Newell also judges Eastern Competitive Trail Riders Association (ECTRA) competitions, and operates a small program involving preservation breeding of Syrian Arabian horses.
