Experience with animals and own pets

My holidays as a child entailed working alongside a veterinarian (Dr Willem Daffue), this is where my love for animals initiated and since then I only grew more fond of them!

I currently have two dogs (Border collie and Pekingese) and a very loving cat. I believe my love for animals and experience working with them enables me to be to make a significant contribution to the families and StudentCo
