Though born and raised as a city girl in Burlington, Ontario, I've always been a rural girl at heart, dreaming of the day I can have my own hobby farm. I am a fourth year student at the Ontario Veterinary College and currently live in Cambridge with my boyfriend Kyle, our bratty cat Malibu, our little rat Bean, my lovely python Aztec, and about a million spiders who seem to love our quaint house. I'm incredibly excited to be taking part in the externship blog project this summer. I love how the posts look into the life of a final-year veterinary student, and I can't wait to provide that window to all who are interested - friends, family, vet students, pre-vet students, anyone! I am bubbling with excitement at the very thought of throwing on my steel-toed boots, yanking on my rectal sleeve, leaving my NAVLE studying textbooks in a haphazard pile on my desk at home, and setting off on this adventure of a lifetime. I welcome the opportunity to take whomever wishes to read my blog posts for a ride-along with me on this journey.
