Surgery and Anesthesia
I'm Rachel but I go by my middle name, Kayleigh. I'm interested in having a career in Aviation Mechanics but also have a soft side for animals, and am thinking about possibly going into that field of work also. I currently own a cat named Mowglie, a snake, and a 9 month old English Mastiff named Kahlua. For fun I like to off road in the mesa, ride dirt bikes and ATVs, go to the street races, drift and just mainly be around cars. I'm a big fan of shooting and also want to look more into getting my home brewers license. My favorite animal is an Elephant and my goal is to one day take a trip out to Africa to work with them.
My name is Perla Chavez. I have two nieces that I love very much and another one due in August. I have a great passion for animals and I hope to become a Vet-Tech in the near future. I love to sing and go to concerts. I also like to go camping and swimming in the summer.
