I initially applied to try a new line of work compared to my previous jobs, I wasn’t expecting to enjoy it as much as I have been. Just like any other job, this one has its ups and downs. However, I’ve found that I genuinely enjoy working with animals and would like to eventually go back to school to become a Vet Tech.

If you could have any animal in the world as a pet, what would it be, and why?
A fox for no other reason than I think they are incredibly cute!
Do you currently have any pets? What are their names and what is your favorite thing about them?
I have a cat name Tazi, he’s a very hairy boy and he lets me wear him around my neck like a scarf! I have a Beagle Pomeranian named Hayden, he is the chonkiest boy! Then I have a Heeler mix puppy named Pixel and she is by far the sweetest dog I have ever met!
What do you find most rewarding about working with animals?
I feel like the work I do has a purpose. The fact that my work directly affects an animal’s quality of life and potentially their happiness, makes me feel like I’m not just doing another job. Every day I do my best to give these animals the quality of care they deserve.
