Shannon’s Answer

Hi Mykelle! I also grew up with a love for animals and was around dogs/cats as well as farm animals growing up. I excelled in math and science and found a love for helping people and their pets so becoming a veterinarian was the right path for me

Shannon recommends the following next steps:

Get experience in a vet clinic
Work with many types of animals
Talk to Vets who work with all different animals
Do well in school
Work on leadership and communication skills

Julie’s Answer

Hi Mykelle! I always loved animals since I was a kid, and originally wanted to become a wildlife biologist or a writer. Then I realized that I was passionate about helping people take better care of their pets, and decided to apply to vet school after getting an English degree. I had several vet school classmates who were in their 40's or 50's, so if you have a lot of interests, don't worry. They'll make you more well-rounded, and you still have plenty of time to consider all of your career options. Hope this helps!
