“My experiences as a Peace Corps volunteer provided a great deal of perspective with regard toward how veterinary medicine is practiced in different parts of the world and the attitudes people have towards animals. The Galapagos Islands for two years were my home and the people and animals there my family and therefore I strongly see the need for spay/neuter programs to control the pet population and programs to provide client education in general.”
