Why I Work at Harbor Animal Hospital!
Any glimpse into the life of an animal quickens our own and makes it so much the larger and better in every way. John Muir
I have loved animals from a very young age. Throughout my life, I have had many pets including dogs, a cat, a horse, fish, and snakes. It was the impact that having pets has had on my life that made me choose to pursue a career in veterinary medicine. Realizing the importance of pets to people, and learning about the Human-Animal Bond, I knew that becoming a veterinary technician would be a great way to give back and to promote this special bond.
When I first moved to California from North Carolina, I was experiencing some degree of culture shock as I was searching for jobs. The first time I walked into Harbor Animal Hospital for an interview, it immediately felt like home to me, and I knew I was at the right place.
Working with a group of people who share my passion for animals and good medicine has been instrumental to my development as a person. I have learned so much from both colleagues and clients from working here. It gives me such joy to help someone to better understand what their pet may be going through medically or to help teach someone about the importance of preventative medicine to promote the longest and best life possible for our furry friends. I would never dream of doing anything else that didn’t involve animals. Harbor Animal Hospital continues to change my life with each new day, and I know that at Harbor Animal Hospital, both animal lives and human lives are being changed for the better.
