Q:  Tell us about yourself and your experience with animals?

A:  After finishing University, I opened a commercial dog walking and cat sitting company. To keep my clients` pets safe I trained in pet first aid. This eventually led me to my passion as an educator and Administrator of Walks `N` Wags Pet First Aid.

Q:  What is a fun fact about yourself?

A:  I think I am part dog. I have to stop and greet every dog that I see on the street. Sometimes I talk to humans too!

Q:  What do you love about World Vets?

A:  I love World Vets because the organization is supportive, organized and has an excellent grouping of staff and volunteers.

Q:  What motivates you to volunteer with World Vets?

A:  Volunteering with World Vets has allowed me to experience life in different cultures and see the impact our clinics can have on communities we touch. I have also made lifelong friends in the process.

Q:  What was your favorite World Vets moment?

A:  My favorite moment was on my 2nd World Vets trip to Colombia. A local volunteer worked side by side with me for one of the clinic days. That day she adopted a homeless puppy. She named the puppy Lisa, after me! I couldn`t have been more honored.

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