From left to right we have Amy, Jacob (who also volunteers his time at the LA Zoo!) and Laurel.
Amy has officially joined the HPVC team as staff!
These wonderful volunteers have since left us and have continued to pursue their careers in veterinary medicine by continuing/finishing school and collecting experience in the field (:
"I'm a senior at the University of Southern California, majoring in neuroscience and minoring in natural sciences with a plan to apply to veterinary school next summer. I'm working at the clinic because the staff is amazing and I love helping animals and learning as much as I can about veterinary medicine. I am the proud mother of 3 beautiful and intelligent pugs; Isabella, Mossimo and Dante, as well as an extremely handsome Egyptia Mau cat named Maui."
Brooke is now currently studying at Western SVM (:
"I go to Pierce College out in San Fernando Valley. As of now I'm majoring in Pre-Veterinary Science and have been attending Pierce College for what will be a year after this semester is complete. I'm volunteering at Hancock Park because there is only so much you can learn from books. The other half you discover from working in the field with others and your furry teachers. When I think if a career I imagine something you can wake up to knowing you're making a difference in your own little way. For me, that's working with animals."
Ian continued his education at Pierce College.
"I'm a student at UCLA majoring in Bioengineering and a minoring in Spanish. I'm volunteering at Hancock Park Vet Clinic because they give me an opportunity to learn a lot about what these animals and their owners need. I was never able to own a pet of my own so Hancock Park also gives me the chance to interact with these pets as well. I plan to go to veterinary school in the future in hopes to one day treat these pets myself."
I'm currently a 4th year at UCLA, majoring in Microbiology, Immunology, and Molecular Genetics (MIMG) and minoring in Environmental Systems and Society. I am pre-vet and planning to apply to school this summer. I am volunteering at the clinic because of the great staff and the satisfaction of making a difference in animals' lives.
Cindy is continuing her education at Colorado State.
