Sarah Padget is a 2nd year transfer student majoring in Biology. She has two dogs, three cats, a lizard, bunny, and a fish, all of whom inspire her to pursue her dreams of becoming a veterinarian. When she was younger, she wanted to be a vet because she loved animals and she wanted to be around them all of the time. However, it wasn't until two years ago that she took action to pursue those dreams. She moved to Washington State University, where they had a pre-veterinary program and a veterinary school, all on campus. Last summer, she got her first internship in Ohio, where she shadowed a large and small animal veterinarian. They got to go on farm calls and perform surgeries on cats and dogs. Her mentor also had connections through the Columbus Zoo and Aquarium and gave her an opportunity to shadow the head veterinarian and veterinary technician. After that experience, she realized that she would like to work at a zoo one day and treat a wide variety of animals. If you have any questions for her please contact her at firstname.lastname@example.org
