He is a 1999 graduate of Carlisle High School before attending Penn State University receiving his BS degree in Animal Bioscience in 2003. Justin then began work at the Carlisle Small Animal Veterinary Clinic in the summer of 2003 as a veterinary assistant. During his time at the clinic, he attended Shippensburg University for his MS degree in Biology. After graduation in 2006 Justin attended Ross University School of Veterinary Medicine on the island of St. Kitts, West Indies.
