Occupational Goal: Veterinarian Technician
“It has always been my aspiration to be a veterinarian. Once I discovered there was a veterinary class I could take through Jordan Applied Technology Center (JATC), I was excited and motivated to get there. I studied and made sure to get plenty of rest so that I could pass the acceptance test. The day I received the acceptance letter to JATC for the veterinarian assisting program was, to date, the best day of my life.
“Veterinary Assisting at JATC has prepared me with knowledge of how to ask questions, view the whole picture, work with people, deal with stressful situations in a timely fashion, use outside resources to find the answers I need, be organized, and so much more. This class has taught me how to be responsible for my time, be respectful of other people’s time, and give prompt responses. It also taught me how to lead a team and coordinate schedules. Veterinary Assisting is the first step to my career, my future, my life.”
