Nereida J.

I got into the animal care field after losing my job and decided to fall back on my childhood dream to work with animals. I am currently in Vet tech school and my end goal is to be in Zoo medicine.

Do you currently have any pets? What are their names and what is your favorite thing about them?
I have 3 cats. Their names are Pippa, Tato, and Lilo. My favorite thing about them is when I am at home is that they become my shadow.
What do you find most rewarding about working with animals?
Helping them live their best healthy life with their people.
What do you enjoy doing when you’re not working?
I love to read cozy mysteries novels, watching anime, hiking, trying new foods, and spending time with my family.
