Improving a local food pantry

Type of Give –


Aside from a daunting political climate that propels hate instead of love, I am pretty burned out from veterinary medicine. There is an extraordinary high rate of compassion fatigue and suicide from chronically dealing with clients and animals suffering. It's not hard to relieve an animal by helping them pass. However, it is anguishing to watch their suffering bc their owners cannot bear to let them go.

I decided to shift my focus from helping animals as a veterinary nurse for the last 15 years to a new passion- helping the environment and the people in my community! I am now working to improve a local food pantry and just started teaching ESL as a volunteer tutor at my local literacy center. This feeds the soul!!
