We know so much about your lives as we get to know about you and your pets. So, we would like to share a little about ourselves in return.
How did you decide that this is the right profession for you?
I had to write a paper in 9th grade careers class about what I wanted to do when I grew up. I chose Veterinary Medicine and never wavered from that choice.
What are your top 3 favorite things about your career?
Tell us a little about yourself that you don’t think our clients know.
I am of 100% Norwegian heritage. The same couple from Norway show up in both my Mom’s and Dad’s family tree, making me my own 3rd cousin! Explains a lot!
In this profession people often don’t think that we get grossed out. What makes your stomach churn a little?
The time one of my Techs was expressing anal glands as I walked into the room and having to go into my open mouth comes to mind.
What is something that your pets have taught with you that you feel sharing with others would help them in their struggles?
If you have a cat that likes to urinate on your clothes that you leave lying around, don’t try to convert them – start over with a new cat! Signed, cat pee across my nose.
