I’m a writer, a reader, a veterinary technician, a baseball enthusiast (Seattle Mariners to be specific), a traveler, a knitter, a student of foreign languages, aspiring Buddhist, and I just made cookies.

In the time I’ve had this blog, I’ve experimented with different “themes,” and I even started other blogs that are more specific. But what it comes down to is this is my space where I write about ALL the things.

    Great blog and love your perspectives. Beware of the vet tech’s Burnt-out syndrome!
    Seattle Mariners!….I really miss Dave Nehouse

    Hi Chrissy! My name is Emma. I’ve read your blog and I really enjoyed it. I have an assignment for one of my classes where I look into what kind of career I’d like to pursue in. Working in veterinary health crossed my mind, and I wanted to know if I could ask you a few questions about your career.

    Hello Chrissy:
    My name is Angelica and after research and searching the web I found your blog that has helped me a lot for your impressions of Penn Foster and your experience studying in this school.
    I am also a student at Penn Foster and until this moment I am very happy to have chosen this option because my work and my life does not permit me to have a specific time to study. I accept a job in a veterinary hospital and I am an apprentice of veterinary technicians. I am in the transition from being a veterinary assistant to a veterinary technician and it has been a difficult but enriching experience.
    I arrived three years ago from Colombia to live in NYC and I never imagined finishing working in this area because I always have the call to work with animals, but I never had the chance to do it in my country, but when I arrived here I started thinking about that possibility and after moving to live in Florida, I started working as a kennel assistant.
    I have met people who are valuable and willing to assist me, because another great challenge in my life has been learning English, working in an environment with completely different people and speaking another language, working in a field completely unknown to me but with all the disposition to do it.
    That’s why I decided to choose Penn Foster. Studying at this school has meant a lot and has confronted me with various challenges… develop my career while it is in another language, a full-time job, and a family.
    I consider I’ve extended a lot to get where I want to go… During my first semester I am about to face the first proctor exam and far from asking you the answers I want to know if you can tell me if it is a good idea to have all the content of what I have seen so far printed and have all the exams that appear in the texts solved. Did you get these books on the test?
    What was the way you faced this type of exam?
    I have many doubts, but basically what I would like you to be able to help me with, is to give me a general idea of which books or study material you took to the proctor exams.
    Thank you very much for the help you can give me.

    Hi Chrissy!
    I was wondering if I could get some more information on your career change from vet tech to physician assistant. I am currently a tech and am looking at making a similar career change.

      Hi! I was actually planning on writing a post about how I made my way to nursing school soon. Let me know what questions you have, and I’ll try and answer/include them in the post that I write.

    Hey Chrissy!
    Random question are you a vet tech pursuing human nursing? Or was your nursing post with studying related to schooling to become a vet tech? I just enrolled in Vet tech school, I was originally an aviation major, but I keep intuitively getting pulled towards being a vet tech.
    Thanks for sharing your blog!
