"Growing up I always had a pet and felt a strong bond with all of them.  I developed a love of science in school.  Then a biology teacher showed a film on Veterinary Medicine.  I was hooked.  I got a job volunteering at a local practice and never looked back.  Learning more about the profession and seeing what an impact it had in peoples lives drew me in.  The day-to-day variety and learning experiences keep me here.  I have always been a communicator (my family might say I talk too much!) and that has helped me as I strive to serve my clients and my patients."
