I moved to AK in 1998 at the age of 10. I graduated in 2005 from Bartlett High and moved to Oregon, where I went to Oregon State University. I received a Bachelor of Science degree in 2010, with a major in Zoology, and minors in Fisheries and Wildlife, and Chemistry with a Pre-Vet Option. I moved back to Alaska in 2010 and worked as a vet tech assistant. In August, 2012, I started at Hillside Pet Clinic where I became a licensed veterinary technician. I have a total of 16 pets, mostly rescues.
