What motivated you to work in veterinary medicine?

I adore animals of all kinds and would love to have any role in helping them.

What has been your most rewarding moment working in veterinary medicine?

I haven’t worked in veterinary medicine before so I have yet to have one.

If you weren’t working at a veterinary clinic, what would you do?

I’m not sure. I also work at Georgetown Cleaners in Fond du Lac so probably that.

What is the most exotic animal you have treated?

I haven’t treated any animals but I care for snakes and my friends own geckos & bearded dragons so I see those often.

What animal scares you more than any other?

I can’t say I have a fear of any animal. I can honestly say that if I could pet an alligator without it biting my arm off I probably would.

What do you consider your greatest accomplishment?

I think my greatest accomplishment is that I’ve never let the situations in my life knock me down and I’m still moving forward.

What do you do in your spare time?

I spend a lot of time with my family and friends.

Cheesecake. Of all kinds.

What is your biggest pet peeve?

People who make plans and never show with no explanation.

What animals do you currently have?

Two ball pythons, 1 banana named Tarzan and 1 normal Kurage, and 1 teddy bear dog Sassy.

If you were to come back as an animal, what would it be and why?

A cat, I adore & relate with their attitude and how they can communicate what they want.

What is your favorite childhood movie and why?

Twister. I have no clue why I just remember watching it every chance I got including after tornado warnings

What is your favorite childhood memory?

Learning how to bake with my mom and grandma. It’s the one thing I love to do for stress relief.
