I grew up in Bogota, the capital city of Colombia, but I spent most of my childhood at our cattle farm. Animals have always been an essential part of my life and at a very young age I decided that my “ideal destination” was going to be becoming a veterinarian! In 2001, my husband, oldest son and I moved to Canada (our youngest son was born after we moved to Canada). It meant a new beginning, a new language, a new culture, and many challenges ahead.  Once our boys were old enough to attend elementary school I received my Honours in Conservation Biology from the University of Western Ontario, followed by my Masters at McMaster University, focusing on bat research. In June 2014 I was accepted into the DVM program at OVC. I'm very fortunate to start the most exciting year of veterinary school at Troy Veterinary Services! It is a practice where I can see myself growing, learning, and training to be the best vet I can be. I will be sharing with you some of my experiences over the next 8 weeks and I hope that you will enjoy reading them and that it will encourage someone to embark on a journey to reach their “ideal destination”!
