Why I do what I do: "I have always loved animals. Dogs, cats, elephants, or mice it did not matter, I wanted to help them all. To be a veterinarian is a calling for me. To either help heal those that I can help or ease their suffering, that is what I live my life for. From a very young age I knew that this is what I was meant to do. I want to spend my life caring for those who cannot directly speak for themselves. To be their advocate, speak for them, care for them, give them comfort, and love them. No matter their size, color, breed, species, or disposition; they are all my patients, my family, and my dreams come true."
