"I have always been interested in medicine and I have always loved animals. I wanted to combine these two passions into a career that challenges me daily and allows me to help pet owners and patients alike. If you find the right career that brings you joy, you never have to 'work' a day in your life, and that is was veterinary medicine is to me."
