  • First pet: "I got a Jack Russel Terrier when I was 3 years old, named Sissy. She was with me until my senior year of high school. She loved to go swimming with us."
  • The most admirable thing about my pet: "Crash has been with me since I was a freshmen in high school. He has helped me get through undergrad, vet school, and my first few years post-graduation. He is getting older now, but he still plays and enjoys going to work with me.
  • My pet loves it when I: "Do yoga. Getting on the floor means attention time for the pets, no matter what you are doing."
  • My favorite part of being a vet at Stand For Animals: "Helping people provide proper care for their pets when times or finances are tough.
