Growing up running around at my grandparents’ farm and getting to tag along with my dad at work, where he is a dairy herdsman at a local dairy farm, I knew I wanted to work with animals when I grew up. I always thought being a marine biologist would be an exciting job, although I thought it was just swimming with dolphins (dolphins are one of my favorite animals). Throughout high school I had taken various science classes and it was always my favorite subject. When I graduated high school, I decided to go to Manchester Community College for environmental science. Three semesters in I realized I wanted to be more hands-on with the animals. I found MCC’s Veterinary Assistant program and enrolled. That program introduced me to Manchester Veterinary Clinic, and let me finally figure out how I wanted to work with animals. I am now an Approved Veterinary Assistant, and on my way to becoming a Certified Veterinary Technician through Penn Foster.

 

My house has always been a home for animals. Currently we have seven cats, most of which are farm kitten rescues that my dad finds while at work. When I’m not at MVC or doing school work, I enjoy being outside and going on hikes with friends and family. Along with hiking, I also enjoy going to the gym where I am usually preparing for some kind of endurance event. I have also participated in several mission trips providing relief aid after natural disasters, which is always so rewarding. I have yet to travel outside of the country for a mission trip, but I would love to someday!
