"The human-animal bond has always amazed me. My first dog, Fritz, was my best friend and saying good-bye to him is one of my most vivid childhood memories. In high school I fell in love with science. I took an anatomy and physiology class my senior year, and at that point I knew I wanted to pursue a career in medicine. In college I took a summer job at an animal hospital and discovered that veterinary medicine would be the perfect career path since it combined my two passions - animals and science.
After school I discovered that I loved bonding with people just as much as I loved bonding with their pets. I am so grateful for the relationships I have developed witht the clients of VCA Buckhead Animal Hospital. Comforting an upset pet owner is just as rewarding as making a sick or injured pet feel better.
The staff I get to work with every day makes me so proud. Everyone is here because they care about animals and only want to keep them healthy. My favorite cases are the ones where multiple team members come together to help a sick or injured pet. This is not a job that can be done alone, and I am so thankful that I have a team I trust and respect."
