Q:  What is a fun fact about yourself?

Q:  What do you love about World Vets?

A:  I love that World Vets provides veterinary care and education where it is not always available. The trips are also a great opportunity for the veterinary team to learn from each other. Getting to see new countries and making friends with people from all over the world is great too!

Q:  What motivates you to volunteer with World Vets?

A:  The opportunity to help people and animals alike. Providing good quality veterinary care in places where it is otherwise not available.

Q:  What was your favorite World Vets moment?

A:  My favorite World Vets moment was performing a spay surgery as a nearly graduated veterinary student, right next to Dr. Joe Kelley as he also performed a spay in Roatan, Honduras. Two years prior, Joe had taught me how to do the surgery and helped me through my very first spay. It was great to work with him again and know that now I could perform the surgery unassisted.

World Vets simply could not operate without our amazing volunteers and cannot thank them enough.  Click here to join the World Vets volunteer team!
