Veteran to Veterinarian feat. Andrea Weinrick | PAWCast 62 | Veterinary Podcast

June 9, 2021

What did you want to be when you were a kid? Imagine going through the process of realizing that dream after already having a successful career and starting a family. Sometimes when you meet someone with a story so unique and so outstanding, you have to give them the platform to tell their story.

That's the mission of PAWCast 62 feat. Andrea Weinrick. Andrea is a 3rd year vet student at Michigan State CVM and has a great story as a second life student. Andrea served 8 years in the military and graduated with a B.A. in Criminal Justice from MSU in 2005. Now she is racing towards a successful career in emergency veterinary medicine with a clear sense of direction and purpose.

In this episode, we discuss Andrea's path from the military to vet school, how military training compares to vet school, and how her life experience has aided and inhibited her educational experience.

Would you go back to school to realize your dream? What would you do to find fulfillment? Let us know in the comments!
