Theo was only 5 months old in this picture and now he’s 10. Over that past decade, he has been my motivation for becoming a veterinary technician. During school, I fell in love with animal research and hope to find a career in it to make an impact that saves thousands of lives. Animal and human lives alike. In the vet med field, it is clear to me what a true difference animal research provides for the health and well being of our animals.
