Animal Health Technician
What do your pets mean to you?
My two cats Caseih and Kia are two of the most valuable members of my family. Their health and happiness are some of my main priorities. As soon as I get home my Caseih is right there beside me and makes my day instantly better. I truly believe that having animals makes me a better person.
What makes you, you? What makes you unique and indispensable at work, but also in your personal life?
Growing up on a dairy farm has definitely made me who I am today. I learned a lot about team work and work ethic from my parents. As my mom says on a regular basis: “We can accomplish much more if everyone works together”; something that is true in the farming business as well as in a veterinary hospital.
From the time I was born I’ve been around animals and the veterinary world. I saw the large animal vet come to our farm often to take care of the cows and at a very young age I took it upon myself to make sure the barn cats were taken care of as well. The large animal vet would often comment on how healthy our cats looked. It just made sense for me to study to become a veterinary technician. Other than animals, my friends and family are a big part of my life. I played many sports growing up but now I enjoy playing softball in the summer and curling in the winter.
