Most avian veterinarians spend all their time in a clinic and have very limited field experience. As staff veterinarian at Hartman Aviary, Dr. Oglesbee has developed skills in many areas not available to most avian veterinarians. Her unique experience includes, incubation, nursery management, population dynamics, breeding husbandry and flock management.

During this time, Dr. Oglesbee also served as Professor of Avian and Exotic Animal Medicine at The Ohio State University College of Veterinary Medicine. As Professor of Avian Medicine, Dr. Oglesbee developed an exclusive course at Hartman Aviary that provided over 100 veterinary students with significant outpatient clinical experience.
