Purdue Veterinary Medicine is pleased to welcome Vannessa Farmer as the new Assistant Director of Financial Affairs (ADFA).  She joined the College’s Business Office team June 17.  Vannessa has been with Purdue University for two years and comes to PVM from the College of Agriculture where she served as the Business Manager for the Departments of Animal Sciences and Botany and Plant Pathology as well as the Animal Sciences Research and Education Center (ASREC). 

Vannessa holds an MBA with a dual concentration in Accounting and Finance and was in retail management for nearly ten years prior to working at Purdue.  On a more personal note, Vannessa is mom to five “family members” – three small humans (two young men and a young lady) as well as one large dog and one cat! She is very excited to be taking on the ADFA position within the College and looks forward to getting to know everyone.  You can contact Vannessa at, or by phone at extension 42384, or stop by her office in Lynn 1202 and give her a warm PVM welcome!
