Her desire from childhood was to be in the veterinary industry. Between pet sitting, farm work with research animals while working at a research facility, she knew this was the right place for her. Her favorite part about being in the veterinary industry is that veterinarians are the guardians of animals, as well as the animal’s unquestionable love.
