Growing up on a small farm in Elkridge, Maryland, Dr. Hanum Wensil-Strow, developed a passion for pets and their well being at a very young age. This passion led her to pursue a career in Veterinary Medicine. During her undergraduate studies at the University of Maryland, she completed several internships at the National Aquarium in Baltimore, the USDA, Patuxent Wildlife Research Center, and the San Diego Zoo Safari Park. She later went on to earn her Veterinariae Medicinae Doctoris from the University of Pennsylvania School of Veterinary Medicine.
She was the proud recipient of over 15 veterinary scholarships and enjoys spending her time presenting to prospective graduates on scholarship opportunities in veterinary medicine. Dr. Wensil-Strow says, “figuring out an obscure diagnosis and getting to know a whole family and all of their animals” is what she loves most about being a veterinarian. She continues “I also love the feeling at the end of the day that you worked hard towards something really important!”
Dr. Wensil-Strow has special interest in Dermatology, Preventative Medicine, Exotics and Surgery. She is actively involved with her local shelter and is a member of the Penn Vet Alumni Association.
She shares her home with her partner Jeff and her fur kids Penny Lane, Walrus and Eleanor Rigby! In her spare time she enjoys traveling, baking, cooking, hiking, exploring new restaurants and reading!
