Growing up I always dreamt of being a veterinarian, but as I got older I tried to be more realistic with myself and how much schooling I wanted to put myself through. I’ve always had pets growing up and the older I got the more my love grew for animals, so when the opportunity came up to work with animals I couldn’t pass it!
If you could have any animal in the world as a pet, what would it be, and why?
I would pick a cow because I think they are so cute and I feel like I’m pretty equipped to handle cow-like animals (my dog).
Do you currently have any pets? What type and what are their names?
I have two dogs, Athena and Zeus. Zeus is a Great Dane puppy and Athena is a Great Dane Pitbull mix. They are both still really young and hyper so they keep me on my toes.
What is your favorite thing about working with animals?
My favorite thing would be the interactions that happen daily with not only the pets I get to come in contact with but the owners as well. Pet owners often feel as though their pets are family so I’m excited to help them with all their needs.
