"I've loved animals since I was a young girl but didn't consider becoming a veterinarian until I started my first job at the age of 15 in the kennel of a local veterinary clinic. That was my first exposure to the depth and complexity of care involved in veterinary medicine and I've had a passion for it ever since! I truly enjoy all aspects of medicine and surgery, but I enjoy getting to know the pets and their families even more. I definitely have one of the greatest and most unique jobs in the world!"
