Why I Do What I Do...

"From a young age, I had a love for all animals. It wasn't until I started working as a veterinary technician assistant at an animal hospital that I realized my true passion for medicine, and from then on I knew I wanted to be a veterinarian, I believe that veterinary medicine is about caring for people and pets, and fostering the importance of the human-animal bond. I truly enjoy coming to work every day and the people I work with. I couldn't imagine myself doing anything else."
