“Animals have always been my passion. From a young age I learned to help the sick and injured, so it was only natural that I would enter the veterinary field. What I didn’t expect was how much I would enjoy teaching others to care for animals with the same love and dedication. There is only one thing better than increasing your own knowledge, helping others increase theirs. By doing so you can influence and help exponentially more human and animal lives.”

“My favorite part of teaching is when all of the pieces of the puzzle come together and the students understand the purpose behind the lesson.”
