I always wanted to work in the animal field. After high school, I knew I wanted to take a year off to myself. But, as usual, life gets in the way. I ended up getting married, getting divorced, having a son that I put up for adoption, considering going into the military…You get the idea. 10 year after high school, I finally enrolled in Carrington College, and I didn’t look back. I was able to achieve my goals, and obtain a degree in Veterinary Assisting. Will I stay at this level? Of course not. But now that I have a foundation to stand on, I can get started in the field, and expand my knowledge, eventually pursuing a higher education in the veterinary field.
