What do you consider your greatest accomplishment at this point in your life?
Taking a leap of faith in myself and going to vet school in the Caribbean! It was scary moving somewhere that I didn't know a soul, but it was the most amazing experience. I now have so many wonderful colleagues from all over the states and other countries!
What's your favorite comfort food?
Does coffee count? It's the only reason I get out of bed in the morning! And I love Reese's peanut butter eggs during Easter!
What are 3 things that people might be surprised to know about you?
- I love scuba diving but am terrified of sharks! Thankfully, I've not (yet) encountered one while diving.
- I did an externship in vet school in South Africa where I got to work with rhinos, antelope, and water buffalo.
- In vet school I promised myself I would never marry another vet because I didn't want dinner conversations to be "vet talk" every night. Funny how things work out and I wouldn't change our vet dinner convos for the world!
