"Growing up in the Midwest, my family was always surrounded by furry family members - cats, dogs, horses, chickens, guinea pigs and hamsters. There was never a doubt in my mind that I would become a veterinarian and care for these amazing creatures. Every day, I get to meet different animals and people and experience the wonderful bond they share. My "job" allows me to help care for pets, educate owners in prevention medicine, build relationships with clients, and work with many intelligent and caring people."
