Why did you become a veterinarian?

Veterinary medicine allows me to combine a strong interest in the science of medicine with the desire and ability to help animals and people.

What’s your favorite animal?

It is difficult to choose a favorite animal; however, I have always had a special interest in bison, polar bears, big cats/domesticated cats, dogs/wolves, and sharks.
