Since then his passion for the sciences grew until he graduated with a B.S. in Biomedical Sciences from Texas A&M in 2011. He worked for a small animal clinic in Houston for 2 summers during undergraduate work, and switched to working the emergency front desk at the Texas A&M Small Animal Hospital for 3.5 years, ending shortly before starting his last year of veterinary school.
