Doreen Vaughn


Dr. Doreen Vaughn graduated from the University of Illinois College of Veterinary Medicine in 2009. She worked as a small animal veterinarian in the Kankakee and Chicagoland areas before transitioning to teaching. Dr. Vaughn became a Program Director for a Veterinary Technician associate degree Program in southern Illinois. Later on, she moved to Champaign-Urbana and worked as an undergraduate Academic Advisor and an Assistant Director for the Access and Achievement Program in the College of Liberal Arts & Sciences. 

However, Dr. Vaughn missed working with animals and decided to return to veterinary medicine in 2022. She now works as a Clinical Skills Training Specialist at the College of Veterinary Medicine, where she trains first- and second-year vet students in various skills such as performing physical examinations, CPR, anesthesia techniques, and client communication. 

Outside of work, Dr. Vaughn enjoys traveling, reading, listening to podcasts, and spending time with her husband Emmett, her Yorkshire Terrier-mix Stefani, and her cat Lady Marmalade.
