I was born and raised in Wisconsin and was determined to be a vet since I was old enough to hold a stethoscope. Growing up, I had an array of animals, ranging from cats, dogs, horses, llamas, goats, and chickens, to snakes, lizards, and mice. I graduated with a bachelors degree in Animal Science from the University of Missouri-Columbia. After that, I went on to vet school at Ross University in St. Kitts and completed my clinical year at the University of Wisconsin in Madison. While vet school was full of textbooks, study notes, and long hours, it was also the best years of my life and definitely worth it!
