I love my vet career because I love working with people ……. “All People Great and Small”.
Little did I know when I started out on my working life that a career in veterinary medicine was more about helping people than it was about healing animals! And the variety that working with people and their animals provides for an amazing stimulating day……each day …..and each year of my career! And staying flexible means I have ‘my stuff’ together – so keeping healthy, maintaining my income and planning for the future are all important plans to make! Making friends and contacts …..and knowing the career opportunities available has ensured I can be in control.
