Sometimes, the thought of going back to school to follow a passion can be nothing short of terrifying. Ruth Marquardt decided to conquer those fears to pursue her dream – one that included going back to vet tech school at Globe University.

In her final quarter at Globe University, Ruth is ready to take on the world. Her busy schedule keeps her moving and provides her with the real world experience that she needs to be successful. Her schedule includes a laundry list of experiences that keep her learning every day – she’s an intern at St. Bernard’s Animal Medical Center, a dog behaviorist and trainer for Bark Busters Home Dog Training, and even fosters dogs for various rescue groups–something she’s been doing for many years.

Ruth, now a master trainer for Bark Busters Home Dog Training, has been working with dogs for as long as she can remember. She trains dogs in their own home where they are most comfortable. Her work with Bark Busters aids pet owners in training their furry friends on good behaviors. Most recently, her work as an intern has sparked her passion for working with animals and she hopes that the experience there will enhance her skills and ability to provide for a successful career in veterinary technology.

“I am having a great time at my internship!” Ruth said. “There are times toward the end of a person’s education when he or she begins thinking ‘Did I do the right thing?  Should I have done something else?’ I am happy to say my internship has shown me I did exactly the right thing and everything was worth it!”

Ruth also has three dogs of her own, Biskie, a dalmation/pit bull mix, and two chihuahuas, Pedro and Lilly. She also has a pet rat named Spike.

Saint Bernard’s Animal Medical Center is located in Van Dyne, WI. They aim to provide quality veterinary services, to promote wellness, to relieve suffering, and to restore health as swiftly, safely, and humanely as it can be done, consistent with the best service we can give at the highest value for all concerned.
