Krystal, Veterinary Assistant

When I was a kid I wanted to be many things: an archeologist, astronaut and a veterinarian. As I grew up it was pretty clear that those careers were going to be out of my reach for a variety of reasons.  When it was time to go to college I chose instead to follow another passion: art. So I went to school to be a graphic designer and then of course ended up working in retail after job hunting for a year after graduation.  Sever years of working in retail of various forms really made me realize that retail was not something I wanted to do the rest of my life.  In 2015 I decided to go back to school and learn a trade that had to do with animals because they were really what brought joy to my life.  So I joined the Vet Assisting program at Kirkwood Community College and a year later I was interning at Edgewood Animal Hospital, and would later be hired on full time.  It was one of the best decisions I have ever made in my life. I resided in Cedar Rapids with my wife, 2 dogs and 5 cats.
