THE STORY:

I am a second year veterinary student at the University of Illinois. A career in veterinary medicine to me includes protecting public health, educating the community, conserving the environment, being a leader in animal health care, and, saving someone’s best friend. My passion is small animal emergency medicine and giving back to my community.

In my free time I enjoy taking walks with my Black Labrador, Chloe, playing soccer and riding my bike.

As a veterinarian in training, I have a commitment to animal welfare. By volunteering with the Humane Society Veterinary Medical Association - Rural Area Veterinary Services (HSVMA-RAVS) I hope to improve my clinical knowledge, my surgical skills and give back to a community in need.

Please help us serve a remote community in the United States that would otherwise not receive veterinary care. All donations go directly to RAVS for basic expenses, medical supplies, etc.

Read below about more details of my upcoming trip:

____________________________________________________________________

In August of 2015, HSVMA-RAVS staff and volunteers will travel to the Standing Rock Lakota and Dakota Sioux Reservation that is part in North Dakota and part in South Dakota for a 7 day field clinic. The team of 30 veterinary students and 15 professional volunteers will offer free spay/ neuter and wellness care to hundreds of animals in these remote communities where regular veterinary care is not available.

In addition to wellness services, RAVS’ volunteers will care for animals with a wide range of health concerns including puppies suffering from parvovirus and distemper infections and older animals suffering from multiple infirmities. We will help animals with old traumatic injuries and festering wounds, returning them to a happier life with their family. While providing this care, our volunteers and staff will be educating the family on animal care and public health, helping to make the community a better place for the animals and the people of Standing Rock.
