Hi, my name is Max and I am brand new to the world of animal medicine. I come from Michigan and have been in the Virginia area for about 5 years. I study Healthcare Administration over at George Mason University and have backgrounds in Global/ Public health as well as Systems Administration. I originally wanted to work in a large hospital system upon graduation, since working for Annandale I have a new found love for smaller system work and a broader range of healthcare outside human health and medicine. I have two cats back home in Michigan whom I miss for the majority of the year. Working at VCA Annandale is basically a dream job for me where I get to work and understand a healthcare practice as well as get my animal fix in. Outside the office I spend most of my time cooking and taking in the Washington D.C. area. From Art exhibits to restaurants to sporting or musical events and sightseeing. I have been here for 5 years and I feel I have not truly taken in the full experience yet.
