"Ever since I was very young I've wanted to work with animals, ease their suffering, and help their owners have wonderful lives of companionship with their pets. The human-animal bond is a magnificent reality, and to witness it everyday at work is extremely rewarding. Being a veterinarian is not only a job for me but a vocation; it is the most important way that I serve others in my community."
