Q. Why did you join Animal Eye Clinic?
Adara: I’ve always believed that you can tell everything by a pet’s eyes. Their eyes tell us how they feel and, often, they reflect how we feel too. Working with Dr. Davis showed me how to help make pet eyes better. Not only do I think she feels the same, but she is incredibly passionate about this amazing specialty. I couldn’t help but fall in love with pet ophthalmology.
Q. Describe why pets are important to you/how have pets changed or influenced you?
Adara: Pets are like family to me. My family dog, Addie, grew up with me and has been there for me through many highs and lows. There’s something so comforting about talking to her. I honestly don’t know what I would do without pets.
Q. What are you passionate about?
Adara: I love making our pets’ lives better. Seeing dogs and cats come back after treatment with their eyes feeling better or being able to see again is the most rewarding part of my job! Of course, I love hearing their stories and their parents’ stories also!
Q. What is your education/where did you go to school?
Adara: I grew up in Evansville, IN before attending Purdue University. I received my bachelors degrees in Animal Science and Veterinary Technology as well as a minor a biology there.
Q: What special skills or training do you have?
Adara: I have extensive training in ophthalmology nursing and diagnostics, ophthalmic and general surgery as well as anesthesia. Because we are a specialty clinic, we need skills to help pets that may be older or have health conditions. I want to make sure that every pet is taken care of and safe!
Q. What do you enjoy doing?
Adara: I love spending time with my friends and family and of course my family dog, Addie! I also enjoy sports, fishing with my dad, the beach, and obviously all animals!
Q. What are three things on your bucket list?
Adara: Run a Mini Marathon, Travel to Bora Bora and Work with big felines.
