Emily chose to work in the veterinary field after seeing her first cat have to be put down due to an avoidable illness. After that, she knew she wanted to help as many pets as possible, and give families and their companions reassurance in their final moments together. One of the things Emily loves about the veterinary profession is getting to learn something new every day. When she isn’t at work, she enjoys spending time and creating memories with her friends and loved ones. She has one four-legged family member of her own; an orange tabby named Nala.
