I moved to Flagstaff to be able to attend NAU to pursue a degree in Biology. I chose to work in veterinary medicine because I wanted to give a voice to those who don’t have one. I also have always found veterinary emergency medicine very interesting in not only how quickly you have to work but as well as the different types of protocols or treatments that we have to do to be able to figure out what is going on without being told exactly what the patient is feeling or what could have happened. I enjoy being outside on hikes, spending quality time with my dogs (Blue and Wade) and boyfriend and taking the time to expand my knowledge in veterinary medicine so that I can provide better care for any pet that walks in the door. I have no exact plan for the next five years but I can guarantee that wherever I am I will probably be working at an emergency vet.
