My love for animals began when I was a child. One of my favorite activities was going to the SPCA or county shelter to look at all the animals. If my parents had let me, I would have brought home every dog, cat, hamster, rabbit, bird, etc. I saw. From hiding stray kittens in my bathroom to cuddling sick older cats knowing the next day may be their last, I always found myself trying to care for them. In 2018 I began fostering kittens at the Sacramento County animal shelter and have been fostering ever since. It wasn’t until fostering kittens throughout college that I realized I wanted to become a veterinarian. In 2021, I received my bachelors of science in Biological sciences from UC Davis. Shortly after, I began working as a vet tech at a feline only private practice. I quickly realized that I had a greater passion for shelter medicine. I was lucky enough to be offered a part time position at FieldHaven as a veterinary assistant. In the majority of my free time I am volunteering for a local neonatal kitten and puppy rescue as a medical foster and mentor. When I’m not doing rescue I am usually spending time with my personal animals and reminding them that they are still loved despite all the fosters I bring home!
