After completing an internship in large animal medicine, she and her husband moved to Colorado where she was to complete a two-year residency in equine reproduction at the famed CSU Equine Reproduction Laboratory. Fortunately for us, Dr. Magee and her husband fell in love with Colorado and she completed a PhD in reproductive endocrinolgy in 2010 at CSU's Animal Reproduction and Biotechnology Laboratory. Dr. Magee teaches in the Colorado State University Doctor of Veterinary Medicine (DVM) program, where she serves as the course director for Veterinary Physiology and is a floor anatomist for Veterinary Anatomy. She is also the advisor for the biomedical sciences Master of Science animal anatomy concentration, oversees all aspects of domestic animal instruction in the undergraduate and graduate programs in biomedical sciences, and teaches Domestic Animal Anatomy, Dissection, and Case-Based Learning. Dr. Magee maintains an active research laboratory where she studies the role of kisspeptin in the horse and collaborates with others to study several aspects of neuroendocrinology. She is the project lead for the Virtual Veterinary Education Tools team and the development of the suite of Virtual Animal Anatomy (VAA) programs. Dr. Magee participates in the DVM Admissions Multiple Mini-Interview process and assists with several aspects of DVM student success. Outside of work, Dr. Magee enjoys gardening, skiing, riding horses, and spending time with her husband and their daughter.
