What do you like best about your job?



I love the people I work with, and it's great to see the love they have for the animals in their care. Everyone here has so much respect for animals, and it makes me proud.

What do you like least about your job?

My least favorite thing is firing people. It's so hard, and you never want to get to that point. I always feel like I've failed, even if it's not a good fit.

What's your favorite animal-related movie?

Seabiscuit.

What's the weirdest question a client has ever asked you, and how did you respond?

Twice in the last six months clients have asked us if we could check their fecal samples. We've told them that we only provide health care for pets.
