I'm a veterinary student (<150 days left...but who's counting) who found as early as first year that my art background had the potential to make a real difference for us visual learners in vet med.
I started sharing my journey in vet school online from the beginning because of students ahead of me who in the same way made a positive impact on my experience. I wanted to share the highlights and the struggles, and along the way I had encouragement to share how I was trying to learn anatomy. The support of the online vet med community opened up a whole side of my career in veterinary illustration and content creation that I enjoy so much!
But like you, there are many parts to my career in vet med - I'm also a nerd for ultrasound, cardiology, clin path, lameness exams, fear free, and surgery. In other words, I'm ecstatic to start working in general practice next year and I see mixed animal work + owning a practice in my future.
I'm humbled that you're here, interested in where I came from and where I'm going, and I'd love to connect with you - I am a labrador retriever in a human's body after all, so the only thing I love more than people is food!
