Hi, my name is Lizette I grew up in three different countries including the U.S, Canada and Mexico. I love to experience and learn about new cultures especially the way animals are treated throughout different parts of the world. I have always loved animals and I’ve always dreamed about being a veterinarian.

Currently I am in my third year of undergraduate studies at the University of Davis majoring in Animal Science. I hope to attend veterinary school in the future and specialize in either domestic animals or livestock.

On my free time I love to explore the outdoors, go hiking, camping and go on long road trips!

I am very happy and thankful to be shadowing at UNI Pet Clinic were I learn all about the day as a veterinarian and all the important responsibilities that come with the profession.

My name is Diane Yoon and I’m a fourth year vet student at Seoul National University in South Korea. Studying in Korea was a very special experience, but I’m originally from San Jose and I plan to come back after graduation. During the two weeks I spent at UNI Pet Clinic, I felt welcomed and encouraged to participate. The doctors here are skilled and knowledgeable, and always willing to help you learn. I truly learned a lot in just two weeks, not only from the doctors but also the technicians. Thanks everyone at UNI Pet Clinic SJ for making this externship such an amazing experience!

Annie

Hi! I am Annie and I am currently a sophomore at University of Miami, where I am double majoring in marine science and biology. I hope to attend veterinary school in the future and work with mainly marine animals. I am involved in research with zebrafish, modeling human behavioral disorders and studying how the genes affect their behavior. I am also involved in clubs such as the marine mammal rescue team, where I am trained to respond to strandings. In my free time, I love to hang out with my dog, Whiskey, and go scuba diving. My time at UNI Pet Clinic was very valuable. I came in without any previous experience in a veterinary setting and everyone at the clinic was very patient and helpful. They answered all my questions and went above and beyond in taking their time to explain everything they were doing. I learned a lot of new skills, which I am sure will help me throughout my future. My experiences here helped me to be sure that I want to go into the veterinary field.
