“I didn’t realize until my freshman year of college that I wanted to become a veterinarian. Once I made the decision to pursue veterinary school, I quickly obtained a summer job at the veterinary clinic in my hometown for the summer. After that first week, I developed such a passion for this profession that one would think I’d pursued this dream all of my life.”

Why did you become a vet?
As a young child, I was always drawn to animals and had many pets while growing up. As a student, I enjoyed biological science courses and excelled in those areas of study. When the time came to select a career path, I knew that I wanted to enter a field that would be meaningful and provide an opportunity to serve others. Veterinary medicine seemed like a logical career choice, because it combined my intrigue for science with my desire to care for animals while serving the people that love them.
What do you enjoy about your job?
I enjoy the variety. Every day is completely different and brings new learning experiences. My areas of interest within veterinary medicine include feline medicine, dentistry, soft tissue surgery, and ultrasonography. I place a lot of emphasis on client education, and enjoy partnering with my clients to ensure that their pets receive the best care possible.
