Antonia DeGroot



Antonia grew up on a farrow to finish pig farm outside of Stratford, Ontario. She received her Bachelors of Arts and Sciences degree, specializing in psychology and neuroscience, from the University of Guelph in spring 2018. During her undergraduate degree she took a few epidemiology courses, which opened her eyes to the field of epidemiology, and inspired her to pursue a Masters degree in the Population Medicine Department. Antonia started her MSc fall 2018, under the supervision of Drs. Jason Coe and Todd Duffield. She is currently researching communication between food animal veterinarians and dairy producers in Ontario. Her research focuses on describing and exploring veterinarian-producer interactions and the effect on outcomes of veterinary care.

Antonia is involved in the Population Medicine Department at the Ontario Veterinary College, serving as the 2018/2019 Jr. VP of Internal Affairs and the 2019/2020 Co-President of the Graduate Student Executive of Population Medicine.

In her spare time Antonia enjoys riding quarter horses, competing in the National Cutting Horse Association and the Western Ontario Team Cattle Penning Association.
