Summary

My name is Brandy Claire and I aspire to go back to school to be a RVT at least but one day to be able to afford to go back for Equine Veterinary practice. I have some expedite and over ten years working closely with smaller domestic animals. I did start college but quit due to Everest not being up front about not being a credited school however that is my own fault for not looking harder into the school. I run my own grooming business and worked a short time training under a tech for clinical at Alpine and twice with Copper Basin animal hospital years ago however once was mostly groom and board. I would love a chance for more training under a good vet even as an assistant and am very willing to learn more! Thanks so much for your consideration!
