I decided I wanted to work with animals because I have always owned pets my whole life. I want to be a vet when I am older because I genuinely want to make animals’ lives easier and help with their injuries. I know that working at Coyne is a great beginning path for that! 

If you could have any animal in the world as a pet, what would it be, and why?

I would love to have a pet monkey because they are very intelligent animals. I feel like they would be fun to own. They are also adorable!

Do you currently have any pets? What type and what are their names?

Yes – I have 3 beagles (Abby, Pumpkin, and Gizmo), 2 cats (Kitty and KJ), a bearded dragon (Adam), a red-footed tortoise (Turt), and lots of fish! 

What is your favorite thing about working with animals?

My favorite thing is noticing how loving pets can be. They truly make you feel like you are their best friend!
