    I hope that my teaching helps student decide to join the veterinary profession in a positive way, helps others learn from their experiences and knowledge, and opens their eyes to differences in our animal species. For those who go through the class and don’t enter the profession, I hope that I have instilled a degree of respect for the profession and for animals around us."

    Muhammad Ali is credited with saying, ‘Service to others is the rent you pay for your room here on earth.’ This is how I view teaching – by teaching the students that I serve and furthering the profession of pharmacy. Teaching is also the way that I pay it forward for all the great instructions from the wonderful instructors who taught me."
