    On what she enjoys most about working at WVRC…“Animals positively enhance our lives, and they are able to bring out some of the best qualities in people. I realized that I wanted to care for animals, and the most logical way to do this was to become a veterinarian. Being able to offer treatment options, whether curative or palliative, for a different kind of chronic disease (cancer) is important to me. We should continue the fight against cancer while allowing patients to maintain a good quality of life.”
