When I was 10 years old I found my newt (Fire) all dried up; (Fire) had been missing from his aquarium for several days. In a panic, I insisted that he get rushed to our family veterinarian. Obviously (Fire) had been dead for a while but I remember Dr. W taking my concerns to heart. He examined (Fire), pretended to do CPR and then informed me he had died. Dr. W’s compassion to an emotional 10-year-old had a lasting impact on me.

Just like Dr. W was to my family growing up, I too have formed bonds and relationships with people that go well beyond their pets. I have become part of people’s families through the care of their pets.

For as long as I can remember, I wanted to be a veterinarian. I never had a backup plan — I just knew with enough hard work and dedication I would achieve my life-long goal. I had to…what else was I going to do?!
