Ashley C.

I’ve always had a passion for animals and taking care of them. I’m currently working towards my Vet Tech degree through Penn Foster. I love being able to be apart of animals lives, even if I see them for a few minutes. I love seeing animals warm up to you and being able to comfort them.

If you could have any animal in the world as a pet, what would it be, and why?
I would love to have a raccoon! I love how social and playful they are, they look so cute when they use their hands like humans do. How could you not love their adorable faces!
Do you currently have any pets? What are their names and what is your favorite thing about them?
I have two pit bulls, Sam and Emily. I love how smart Sam is, he also makes a lot of funny faces. Emily is a nervous girl, but that makes her super cuddly and she loves to sleep, just like me!
What do you find most rewarding about working with animals?
I think the most rewarding thing is when you put a lot of time and effort into making an animal feel safe, and you get to see them open up and see their true personality.
What do you enjoy doing when you’re not working?
I enjoy working on my car, and if the weather is nice, I enjoy riding my motorcycle! I also love being outdoors and spending time with my dogs.
What causes are you most passionate about?
I am passionate about a lot of things! I love creating things like stuffed animals and jewelry! I’m passionate about helping animals and getting to know their different personalities.
