Why I Do What I Do...
"Of course I do what I do because I love animals, but it's more than that. I love knowing that I'm helping the "parents" (owners) too. This is my "family" an I feel good when I'm doing what I do here. I'm working as a receptionist now, but I've been a technician in the general practice as well as working in the emergency room on the overnight shift. I feel like I know the nuts and bolts of this practice and can work wherever I am needed. That's a good feeling and it makes me smile just thinking about it.
People ask me, "How do you do what you do here and see all the bad things?" I tell them there is more good than bad, and I am glad that we are there for the bad things that do happen. Pets need 24/7 care as much as people do...
It took me 48 years to know what I wanted to do when I grew up... and it was to work with animals. I do what I do because I love coming to work. How many people can say that?!?!"
