Gwen moved from Pennsylvania where she was born and raised, to Alaska and started at Alaska Veterinary Clinic in December 2016. AVC is her first experience in the veterinary field, but has always loved working as an advocate for animals and aspires to learn more everyday. While she loves all of the animals she sees, the excitable, goofy dogs tend to bring the most joy to her day. Gwen plans to get her dry suit SCUBA diving certification soon to add to her Alaska adventures. Until then, she tries to be out in the woods or on a mountain with her two dogs, Leila and Rupert, and boyfriend John. At home they get love from their spoiled cat, Mina and the coolest aquatic turtle, Beebs. Beebs has his betta fish to watch in a nearby tank as well.
