    Why did I choose to get into the veterinary profession? Why do I choose to get up every morning and come to work? My answer to these questions is effortless: How could I not?

    As with all careers, there are negative aspects to mine; I choose not to dwell on those because the positives and rewards FAR outweigh the negatives. I am not an emotional person and there are very few things that make me "feel", but animals are one of those things. Ever since I was little, animals and their well being, or lack thereof, has been the one thing that consistently "moves" me, "floats my boat", and "gets me going”. The way I feel and think about animals and view them is something inside of me reserved only for them. Animals are my one and only passion; that passion will never leave me.
     

    It sounds cliché and this is by no means the first time I have said this, but I am truly blessed to not only know 100% what I want to do with my life, and to have known since I was very young, but also to ABSOLUTELY ADORE what I do and be able to make a living from it. There are too many people that loathe going into to work every day because they either hate what they do, hate the company they work for, or both; it is so sad and so unfortunate. I love and look forward to coming to work every day. I am also tremendously blessed to be a part of a company like VCA that shares my passion and consistently demonstrates it by the expectations they set in regards to quality of medicine, patient care, and client service as well as their charitable involvement and community outreach.
     

    Animals are my passion. I have not only dedicated my life to it, but have also made immense investments and sacrifices for it. I am excited to talk about my career and share it with others. Every single day, it is my goal to make a difference and to infect, if not merely share, the passion and excitement that I am blessed enough to feel.
