About Me Most people would probably tell you that I'm creative, smart, and laid back. And I would have to agree with them. I am a bit of a loner, and it takes a bit for me to warm up to new people. Once you get in my circle, you're bound to stay there unless you do something really, really horrible. Sometimes the nerd unleashes herself. Hey! Everybody's got something they're extremely passionate about, and that makes interesting. Animals are usually what gets the information flowing out of my mouth. However, I love to learn, so anything is bound to come out with some extra tidbits. My brain's like a sponge; it just sops up all the information it can. I'm not a girly-girl. I can get pretty, but I prefer being working with my hands and getting dirty. My job let's me do that. I do enjoy my job provided that I'm not stuck shaving some poor dog or cat. I'm not bad at shaving, I just really hate it. So many hours go into it, and all I get out of it is a uniform full of hair. And the rest of the day is filled with itchiness. I love working with animals. I like to think of myself as an animal charmer because sometimes I can handle them. Like the cats at work seem to like me. I don't know what I do. But you've always got to keep your guard up because you never know what might trigger them to turn into a maniac. I've only been bitten twice in the in the years that I've been working. Does it scare me? I don't want to be bitten, but I'm not really afraid of it. I really end up pissed off more than anything. Helping others is probably one of the most important things I'm passionate about. We're all here, and I think we should all lend a helping hand. With that said, I love donating blood. Just a few painful stabs and10 minutes later, I'm on my way to saving a life. Photography is my favorite hobby. It's my baby. It's nice to show people the beauty in simple ordinary things. Looking at me, you probably wouldn't think I'd enjoy hiking. I love exploring and finding new places to see. Nothing like seeing what beauty nature has to offer. I'm an improvised comedy lover and a music mongrel. I'll listen to just about any kind of music, but I have a soft spot for rock and music of yesteryear. Since I work 12 days straight, I do enjoy doing absolutely nothing at all. Some days are just made to be for the lazy. Those days I usually appreciate every thing in my life. My ultimate goal in life is to be happy. If I'm happy then everything else is in place.

Wild Fact About Me I had a speech impediment when I was younger.
My Philosophy Life's too short to be stuck doing things that you don't want to do and miss out on the things that you do want to do.
What Gives Me Hope Each day that I get on this planet is a day closer to my dreams.
If I were Mayor, I'd make the world a better place by Helping those people that want to go to college to better their lives. Tuition seems like it's only going to get more expensive since the government is severely in debt. Better education is better for the future, and I feel a lot more people would go if they could afford it. Each generation below us is the future.
What/who changed my life and why Working at the clinic has changed my life because I've been on both ends of the tunnel--life and death.
