HOW I GOT HERE

As a kid, I was obsessed with animals. I wanted to have my own of every kind. However, intimidated by the prerequisites necessary for vet school, I shied away from vet med. In undergrad, I started working at a primary care practice that made me reignite my passion for the field. A couple years later, I started working at Pender as a Veterinary Technician. I quickly fell in love with the hospital itself and Emergency Medicine. I couldn’t imagine doing anything else. I knew I eventually wanted to move back home to Virginia, and Pender always felt like home.
