I chose to work in the field of Veterinary Medicine because my love of animals meshed perfectly with my desire to practice medicine in some capacity. I have always found myself wanting to help those who could not help themselves and working so closely with animals has given me great fulfillment every day. After trying different careers in the health care industry I still felt like I was missing something. It wasn't long before I realized that choosing a career as an animal advocate was the job I was always meant to have. As soon as I got my foot in the door I never looked back!
I graduated in 2017 and the aspect of Veterinary medicine that interests me the most is the "hands-on" portion of my job. I love doing blood draws, assisting with surgeries and bandaging. My goal is to be able to complete these procedures while ensuring the animals in our care feel as little anxiety and fear as possible. I want each patient to feel safe and loved while they are with us, as I would want my own pets to feel when receiving any medical care.
The thing I love most about my job is getting the opportunity to help those who can't help themselves, to ease pain and fear of sick animals and to ensure they receive the best care possible. I am so lucky to work at this clinic with these amazing individuals who are so supportive, caring, intelligent and funny. They make this a place I look forward to going each day and they constantly encourage each other to continue learning and growing.
