How I Got Here

My passion for animals started at a young age and I volunteered at an equine rescue farm for most of my childhood. In school, I fell in love with the energy of emergency medicine and I love cats, dogs, small mammals, reptiles, and birds. Pender fit the bill perfectly and I cannot wait to live the dream every day.
