Because I am passionate about animals and I would love a job working with animals.
I have been dedicated to the well-being of animals my whole life. Particularly in understanding their behaviors and health. I have experience with all types of animals - from horses when I worked in a barn, to dogs and cats, rodents, reptiles, and amphibians. I am comfortable handling any type of pet. Volunteering at PAWS neuter and spay clinic gave me experience working with animals in post-surgery recovery, as I had to perform duties directly for the pets such as monitoring heart rate and respiration and trimming nails. Also, I had other responsibilities that included cleaning cages, preparing surgical packs, and filling syringes. I am comfortable working with any laboratory equipment having been trained as a TA in college, and working as a peer tutor has given me the ability to communicate and teach students difficult material involving genetics, ecology and evolution.

I am passionate and enthusiastic about caring for animals. I have experience working with small animals and cats. When I worked at RSPCA rescue centre I looked after degus, rats, mice, ferrets, rabbits and cats/kittens. This is when I learnt first hand about the struggles animal charities deal with and how important they are for animal care. It was the first time I had experience with animal welfare in a professional setting. For over a year I have been working with the oldest and largest feline charity; Cats Protection. This is the second time I have had experience with animal welfare in a professional setting. There have been occasions where I have had to socialise cats that were extremely timid. I have learnt how to interact with them so that they become confident around humans. At the moment I have two kittens in my care that have been quite poorly so I have experience of administrating medication. My communication and interpersonal skills were strengthened in my last two jobs. These skills will be useful when interacting with the owners. When I worked at a Mental Health Hospital I dealt with difficult situations. Majority of the time service users were distressed, angry and upset. So it was important to deal with their worries in a sensitive and professional manner. When I worked for Southend Pier there were a few occasions where I had to deal with unhappy customers. I did my best to resolve them and stay calm and polite whilst doing so.
