Dr. Danielle Sawyer, a resident in our Emergency and Critical Care department at ACCESS Specialty Animal Hospital – Los Angeles, spoke to both a Kindergarten class and a 1st grade class on ‘Career Day’ at Will Rogers Elementary School in Santa Monica about being a veterinarian!
There was a short PowerPoint presentation that covered things such as what they do every day, what it takes to be a veterinarian, and what kinds of pets they treat and care for. The kids had plenty of questions (“Do you see dragons?” “How about dinosaurs?”) and were very interested in learning about being an animal doctor when they grow up.
Some 5th graders also got the chance to listen in and got some tips from Dr. Sawyer outside the classroom afterwards. Hopefully we planted a seed and they will be future ACCESS employees one day!
