I have loved animals my entire life. As a child, I watched far too much Animal Planet and tried to take home every stray I could find. As I grew up, this turned into the passion of my lifetime and I now know that I will spend the rest of my life trying to help the animals around me. I am currently in school to become a veterinarian and I hope to work in an emergency veterinary clinic or a wildlife rehabilitation center in the future.
