Why did I become a veterinarian?

Since I was child, I always had a special bond with all my animals. I believe there is nothing better than helping animals that can’t help themselves. I am blessed to be able to be my patients best advocate and care for them throughout their life. I enjoy the variety of species I work with, as well as the ability to work in an office and travel to client’s homes. Every day is different, challenging, rewarding, and fulfilling.
