There are these billboards on the highway close to where we live that says we spend more time liking photos on social media, than planning for retirement. This sounds scary to me.

That was my welcome into the veterinary profession. Starting as early as when I began my undergraduate studies, if I spoke with a veterinarian, the assertion that I would be in debt for the rest of my life would inevitably come up.

I’m so excited to continue to align my actions with my beliefs and can’t wait to see what we can accomplish once we have financial independence.
