What do you like about your job?

Recently, I’ve been taking home all of the turtles that we have rehabilitated to live in my creek & dam. It’s so wonderful releasing them, knowing they will have a great life there!

Anything else to share?

It’s such a privilege to work at an amazing clinic with such dedicated and well-educated staff who care so deeply for the animals & clients that we see. I’ve worked at many clinics since 2009 and this is by far the best one ever!
