Julie Burges
Julie Burges, MS, Blood Bank Supervisor Transfusion Medicine
Julie grew up in Augsburg and Bremerhaven, Germany, but calls Savannah, GA home. She has worked on and off in the veterinary world since 1991. In 1995, she took a break from veterinary medicine and did a stint in the Air Force and Air Force Reserve as a nurse and command post controller. Upon deciding animals were much better patients than humans, she returned to her roots by working in both private practice and academia in Missouri. She began working for UC Davis in September of 2007 as an Assistant Supervisor for Small Animal Nursing. She joined the Transfusion Medicine team in September of 2008, where she is responsible for the day to day operations of the blood bank and its personnel. Burges is a member of NAVTA, Society for Veterinary Behavior Technicians, Veterinary Cancer Society, and the American Society of Veterinary Dental Technicians. Her career interests include Veterinary Emergency Preparedness and Idiopathic Aplastic Anemia in felines.
