American Specialist in Veterinary Theriogenology
Chelsie A. Burden, DVM, MS, DACT works as a reproduction specialist at Goulburn Valley Equine Hospital. While American born and raised, Chelsie took the opportunity to join the GVEH team in 2014 after completing her masters degree and residency at the Colorado State University Equine Reproduction Laboratory. With a focus on the problem of broodmare and embryo transfer, Chelsie quickly became an asset to the veterinary team at Goulburn Valley Equine Hospital. At the end of the first breeding season in Australia, Chelsie transitioned back to the northern hemisphere as a seasonal veterinarian at Claiborne Farm in Paris, Kentucky.
Upon her return to GVEH in 2015, Chelsie expanded her role as a reproduction veterinarian taking on both ambulatory and in-house clientele for a seasonal appointment.
Locum positions throughout 2016-2017 found her bouncing between GVEH, Morocco and the University of Florida.
The research Chelsie completed with the team at the University of Florida is part of a long-standing equine placentitis project. The information gained has allowed exponential professional growth with multiple international lecture opportunities.
