Why did you choose veterinary medicine?
With a background in cellular biology and biomedical research, I value the great contributions of vet med to the scientific community. I also love that I am continually learning and developing new skills both as a technician and with my personal pets. Working in this field has given me the chance to not only work with a variety of amazing animals, but I also have the privilege to make a tangible impact in our client's lives as well.
Tell me about your pets.
“My sweet baby girl, Princess Leia, is a quirky and playful, 4 year old Doberman mix who loves going on morning hikes, cuddling up with her favorite blankey and providing an endless supply of sloppy kisses to everyone she meets. I am certain that her big brother, wolfy-man Marli, who sadly passed away recently, still comes to visit her in spirit. He was a beautiful black lab/german shepherd mix, covered in fluff and overflowing with joy and unconditional love. He was truly a once in a lifetime pet, with a special soul and I can still feel his presence when I come across a mischievous squirrel in need of a good chase!”
