We Are All Interconnected

A Shared Path is a blog devoted to the interconnectedness of life. Of sharing paths with others as we journey through this life. For me, that interconnectedness includes humans, animals, Nature, and Spirit. These beliefs have shaped who I am and how I see the world. It is why I share my journey, my path, here through this blog, so that others may see and recognize the interconnections in their own lives.

Veterinarian, dog mom, advocate for pets and Nature

catI grew up on a farm in the Midwest, so I connected with animals and Nature at an early age. My close bond with the animals during that time taught me many things about life as well as some of life’s harsh realities. I gained a wealth of insight on how animals, in their own way, can teach and guide us in our own lives. Nature also gives us tales and signs, and it’s some of these lessons I hope to pass on to you.

My love of animals guided me into the veterinary profession. I have been a small animal veterinarian for the last 20 plus years, and I’ve had the honor of meeting and helping numerous patients and clients. I have had a hand in the miracle of birth, been challenged by difficult cases, intervened to save a life, and helped another to pass on with dignity. My path has been blessed by incredible pets who taught me how to be a good veterinarian as well as some clients who showed me what it meant to love a pet. Such precious experiences should be shared.

My love of animals contributes to my being a proud dog mom. These days I share my home with my Chesapeake Bay Retriever, Luke. He has such a big personality he deserves his own page. Looking through the lessons of my life, I can see how our paths were meant to cross at this place and time. We also share our home with a fuzzy feline named Eddie, Luke’s cat. They grew up together and are inseparable, often eating, playing, and sleeping together. Goes to show that two species can bond instead of killing each other. Now if only we humans could embrace that same concept.

It is my hope that you too will find the interconnections in your life. I look forward to hearing from others with the same love of animals and Nature as I do.
