At age two I was introduced to a big, wet nosed Flat Coated Labrador Retriever named Snoopy; he was my best friend and also the reason I told people I was eventually going to become a veterinarian when I grow up. Many years later I still strive to meet that aspiration and continue to work toward it. I started working in an animal hospital at a young age as a kennel tech primarily scooping and cleaning.
I have learned on the job the ins and outs of veterinary medicine in the past five years along with volunteering at equine centers and wildlife sanctuaries. I love being a technician especially on emergency and surgical shifts.
I currently attend U of A for my Bachelors in Veterinary Science with the ultimate goal to advance to vet school. I own a vibrant young horse named Bella and an adorable Dachshund mix named Sebastian. (With IRAH since 12/2013)
