I was born into a family of animal lovers and had an early appreciation for many species. I also recognized at a tender age that Jamaica had a high number of strays not only in rural areas but also in urban ones.
Through volunteering and further exploration of the field, I concluded that I needed to pursue a career in Veterinary Medicine. My focus was intended to be in small animal practice and specifically improving their local animal welfare.
While the latter remains my mission in my career, I have deepened my appreciation for a wider range of animals and through treatment and education I continue to find the profession to be a fulfilling one.
