My true passion in life is animals and wildlife conservation. Ever since I was young it has been my dream to be a wildlife veterinarian. The longer that I've been in school, the more I've come to realize how important conservation and preservation of the earth's biodiversity really is. I just graduated from PPCC with an Associate's degree in zookeeping technology. I still have about three more semesters at UCCS for Biology and Pre-veterinary degrees.
After I finish my undergraduate program, my goal is to do my Doctor of Veterinary Medicine (DVM) at the University of Nairobi in Kenya. This program will allow me to complete veterinary training, where I can then work in the field as a wildlife veterinarian and support conservation efforts from the heart of where these animals live.
Science has always been a keen interest of mine, because I am fascinated by how nature works and functions. My interest in veterinary is what contributed to my interest in biology, ecology, and chemistry, as they are all very important in the lifecycles of organisms. I was involved in a STEM program during my middle school years, which focused on building up science and engineering backgrounds in young teens. I also conducted many experiments for science fairs and just for personal interest throughout the years. In high school, I was part of Science Olympiad, which is a regional and national competition for high school students active in science.
With the variety of degrees that I am currently completing, I have an interesting mix of classes. For my Zookeeping degree, I have completed many husbandry classes including mammals, reptiles and amphibians, birds, fish and invertebrates as well as general biology and zoonotic preventative medicine. For my biology and pre-veterinary degrees, I have many general biology classes, genetics, ecology, chemistry (both general and organic), mathematics, and of course other credits involved with humanities, social sciences, and philosophy. For these degrees, I have done a large number of presentations, oral speaking, and elevated essay writing.
As an intern on a ranch, my daily tasks included mucking stalls, grooming horses, cleaning/mending things around the area, feeding, and a variety of other ranch tasks.
