She received her bachelor’s degree in biology, participated in the honors program, and was a member of Alpha Lambda Delta. Her path led to Tufts University School of Veterinary Medicine, where she worked and trained alongside highly experienced technicians. She spent several years working as a technician in the wards of their small animal hospital, while earning her DVM.
