Why did I become a veterinarian?

My interest in becoming a veterinarian grew from my love for animals and interest in science. Growing up, I was inspired by my grandpa and dad’s careers as first responders and how their selflessness helped people in crisis. Being a veterinarian, I can combine my love for animals and follow in my family’s footsteps by going the extra mile to help people, strengthen the human-animal bond, and provide the best care for their furry family members.
