Dr. Sullivan’s Illini spirit runs deep. In addition to completing a double major in animal sciences and chemistry as an undergraduate at Illinois, he was also a cheerleader. During his veterinary studies, he found time to be the assistant varsity cheerleading coach. He says one of his most exciting moments was being right on the court when Illinois beat Arizona on the way to the 2005 Final Four & National Championship Game.
Dr. Sullivan and his wife, who is also an Illinois College of Veterinary Medicine grad, share their home with two dogs, Oskee and Haley.
When he’s not working, Dr. Sullivan enjoys working out and doing Crossfit. And, of course, he loves Illinois athletics.
