Working with animals has been something I’ve always wanted to do for as far back as I can remember. After high school this is what I was going to pursue until I found out I was highly allergic to cats. Much to my surprise over time & with a little “natural immunity” formed by not being able to resist the furry little creatures, I was cured. Fast forward to 2008 when I attended Vet Assistant school at Northcoast Academy in Kent, interned at Mantua Vet Clinic, & was hired shortly thereafter. My early goals of working with animals finally came to fruition & it is the perfect career to compliment my personal animal menagerie at home of dogs, cats, rabbits, ducks, goats, a pot-bellied pig, & a red eared slider.
