Why did you choose the vet tech program?

I chose the Veterinary Technology program because I’ve always had a love for animals, and I wanted to be able to help make a difference.

Why did you choose Globe University?

I chose Globe University because of the class size and the convenience of the school being local.

Favorite part of the program?

There are a lot of things that I like about this program, but my favorite part is how much hands-on experience we receive.

Most interesting thing you have learned during your time here at Globe?

I’ve learned so much throughout this program that it’s really hard to choose one specific thing!

What you want potential students to know about Globe/Vet Tech Program/going back to school in general?

The Veterinary Technology program is a lot of work, but it is very rewarding. The classes are difficult and require dedication along with a lot of time and effort, but you have a sense of accomplishment once you move onto the next quarter.

What do you do to stay motivated?

I stay motivated by remembering how far I’ve already come since I started this program.

Who are your biggest supporters with school and why?

My biggest supporter is my mom because she’s been there for me since the beginning. She’s always been willing to help me study and offer words of encouragement.

What are you most proud of so far academically?

I’m proud of passing all of my classes the first time.

What has been your biggest challenge?

My biggest challenge is being able to balance school, work and a social life.

What do you do for fun?

I enjoy spending time with my family and friends.

If you could spend 24 hours with anyone, who would it be and why?

David Liss. He’s an RVT specialist in emergency/critical care and small animal internal medicine that works at referral/specialty facilities in Los Angeles. I’ve heard much about him from my coworkers, and I would like to be able to meet him and be able to learn from him.
