My name is Katelyn Blake and I am a first year at the University of Florida's College of Veterinary Medicine. My interest in having a career with animals started from a young age when I saw the difference they made in a person’s life. Whether it was for the provision of food, companionship, or security, animals are integral to human life. After working with a diverse array of animals, being involved in situations where I can give back to communities was most rewarding. The Rural Area Veterinary Services program (RAVS) by the Humane Society Veterinary Medical Association offers an incredible opportunity for me to do just this. For a week in June, I will volunteer my time at a Native American Reservation in White Mountain, Arizona, to provide free veterinary care where it does not already exist. On this trip, not only am I able to expand my education and training in the veterinary field, but will indoubtably undergo life-altering experiences that I apply towards my future career. A career I selected because I desire to develop and maintain these diverse relationships that last a life-time in all communities.
