As you can see from my profile, I love animals. I thought that I should talk about how I decided to go in the career of a Vet Tech.
This me and my first puppy, Rambo.
Ever since I can remember I loved to be around animals. When I was about seven I though that it would be cool to be a veterinarian, to help animals that are sick and make them feel better. I loved taking care of my pets when they were hurt.

When I got to high school they had job shadows, where you go and follow people around to see what career is the best for you. When I was a freshmen I got the opportunity to job shadow a veterinarian, and I was very excited. During that whole entire day I watched the vet. I just couldn't imagine myself doing all of the stuff that she was doing. When I got home that night I had the feeling that this was not the right job for me. As I thought about what I saw that day it came to me that all of the things that the vet techs were doing were things that I could do. Things like monitoring the animal while it was in surgery, taking blood and doing tests and things like that. I thought that it was really cool.

That day changed my entire career plan. I am so very thankful for job shadows to help find the right job for me.
