I didn’t consider any other career, but it was my love for skydiving that got me where I am today. Just before applying for vet school, I embarked on an overseas trip to visit family. On one of the long-haul flights I mentioned to one of the stewards that I was an avid skydiver – and I was very privileged to be invited to join the pilot in the cockpit for the landing of the plane! During this amazing experience, the pilot happened to mention to me that, despite being a commercial pilot for more than 20 years, he still skipped to work each day. They may have been throw away words to him but they had an incredible impact on my life.
It was that passion that got me through vet school, that makes me treat every patient as if they were my own … and it was that passion that drove me to seek out the perfect clinic and business partner that I have today. Megan and I live by the words DREAM BIG and I truly believe that we can with the wonderful staff, clients and patients that we have at The Strand Veterinarian. We aim to be different, to challenge the norms and to be ourselves. We are truly blessed!
