Nathan Dewsbury is a fifth generation Texan and proud of it. He was born and raised in Central Texas. His interests have led him into multiple areas of work and recreation, giving him a broad perspective on life.
Nathan graduated from Texas A&M – Corpus Christi with a bachelor of science in microbiology and shortly thereafter began working in Galveston, Texas, as a scientist with University of Texas Medical Branch – Sealy Center for Vaccine Development. His most notable research during his time there was on West Nile vaccine, about which he wrote several publications. At the same time, Nathan expanded his love of working with dogs. He started training working-type dogs for obedience, protection work, and working livestock. He fostered and trained several dogs for the Galveston Island animal shelter and showed dogs in AKC, ADBA, and NALC dog shows.
After that Nathan moved to College Station, Texas, where he began studying at Texas A&M University toward his master of science degree in biotechnology and master of business administration with minors in entrepreneurship and management. During his time of study Nathan served as an analyst evaluating life science technologies for investment decisions for a commercialization office. Toward the end of his graduate studies, Nathan started Best in Show Diagnostics (BiSD), a canine genetic health testing company. Once the lab opened he also developed several genetic screening tests for working-type dogs. After graduating with his master’s degree, he sold his part of the testing company and began work with a livestock feed additive company. By working for this company he learned so much about the products, industry needs, and business aspects of the field that he cofounded another company, 4F Enterprise. Nathan’s next endeavor, working with a Swiss herd health diagnostic company, has led to his current position with ThermoFisher Scientific. This position has enabled him to influence the U.S., Canadian, and Latin American diagnostic testing complex. He is currently serving his second term on the Bovine Committee of the National Institute for Animal Agriculture.
His latest ventures involve helping guide the formation of an innovative dog food company as a Board of Directors member while advising the launch of a new consulting company, Novis Animal Solutions. Nathan lives in College Station with his wife Stacy and their son Wyatt. He spends his spare time training dogs, dancing, and planning his next travel adventures.
