I am a third-year veterinary student at Iowa State University. I am currently pursuing small animal oriented medicine and hope to find myself working, and possibly owning my own, veterinary clinic down the line. This is a career that requires a high level of education and experiential learning in a variety of environments.
Through the Mentors Foundation, I was able to intern at the Capital Humane Society. During this time, I received hands-on experience in many aspects of the veterinary profession. Additionally, I was exposed to the inner workings and day-to-day routines of an animal shelter. Up until this time, I have worked with animals through a local veterinary clinic. Suffice to say, the two environments are very different and the experiences I had at each are paramount to my being the best professional I can be.
