"From a very early age I had a huge love for animals. I always wanted to take care of them and so the veterinary field always seem like the best choice for me. Once I started working at AAH I quickly realized that I loved learning about medicine and surgery. My main reason for working at AAH is the promise of learning new and interesting things every day. I truly have a 2nd family here and love that my job has turned into a career."

"My name is Joshua Lambert. I grew up in Florida, There I was able to see lots of wildlife. I played with snakes, lizards, alligators, all kinds of reptiles. I've always enjoyed exotic animals. Working here I'm still able to see exotic pets people have and I like that. Our hospital is like no other, we take care of injured wildlife, so its very interesting to see what is going to come through the door. We have seen deer, rabbits, all kinds of birds, even a bear cub. I enjoy helping treat the animals, I find the diagnostics very interesting also. I enjoy my job, every day is different and interesting."
