I grew up riding and training horses, and have always loved working with animals. After working as an equine veterinarian in California from 2018-2019, a desire for better work-life balance and the opportunity to expand my knowledge with all animals drove me to pursue a job at Banfield. The Banfield family has been fantastically supportive and encouraging, and it has been a fantastic experience. When not riding horses, I spend time writing, reading, drawing, and skiing.
