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

Q:  What motivates you to volunteer with World Vets?

A:  All my life I have had a need to volunteer, whether as a Reserve Deputy, Red Cross Chairman, etc., but like the little drummer boy, I use my best talent to help others and their animals and my talent is being a good veterinarian.

A:  Watching owners pick up their pets after surgery!!!!
