I have loved animals all of my life and I’ve strived to learn more about them since I was young. The opportunity to work at Maurice Veterinary Clinic is very exciting and I’m passionate about learning more about the veterinary field! When I am not at the clinic, I take care of a barn of eighteen horses, four dogs, and several cats. I love all of my animals, they teach me something new every day. I try to ride my horse and train with my dogs in my spare time. I’m very close with my friends and family as well, who are also in the animal field, and we all help each other to learn and grow. I have completed one semester at Penn Foster to become a Certified Veterinary Technician, and hope to return to it and complete my studies one day. I look forward to learning more and growing in this career, it’s my life’s passion.
