My name is Lydia, I am a Veterinary Assistant at Westgate. I was born and raised in Buffalo, NY and moved to Minnesota in 2009. I must love it here because I decided to stick around and received a Bachelors in English Literature from the University of Minnesota in 2016. I have always adored animals and wanted to have a career that involved them. I worked at a dog daycare for 5 years before joining the Westgate team. I have learned so much here and hope to soon go to school to become a Certified Veterinary Technician. My own pets are a Beagle Mix named Mango and a loving Orange Tabby named Jeffrey.
