I recently had the opportunity to go back to my high school, Owen J Roberts, and talk to students about career options as a veterinarian and the path that I took. I was humbled by the experience and I have extra appreciation for all of our teachers. I was fortunate to have many amazing teachers throughout my life who helped forge my career path in veterinary medicine. One particular teacher in vet school, Sam Lindley, sparked my interest in acupuncture and complimentary medicine and I am forever grateful to her. Thank you to Megan Mower for giving me the opportunity to talk to your students and Jo-an Rechtin for the blog in OJR news: http://ojrsdnews.blogspot.com/2017/01/exploring-careers-in-holistic-vet-care.html.
