What are some of the most satisfying aspects of your work as a veterinarian?
I absolutely love the endless puzzles that come with veterinary medicine. There is always something new to learn or a skill you can polish. I also enjoy taking on interns and young volunteers. Being able to help them learn keeps me close to my passion for education.
What are some of the biggest changes you have seen in food-animal veterinary practice during your career?
Technology and the increased usage of veterinary technicians are the biggest changes I have seen in veterinary practice. Both of which I believe are fantastic advances and I believe these changes will continue. These changes will help to advance the industry and make us more efficient.
