Dylan has always loved animals. In pre-school, his teacher, a former zookeeper, who owned a farm, taught Dylan how to care for her farm animals. It was hard work, but he enjoyed it and continued helping until graduating from high school. After high school, Dylan attended Skidmore College and graduated in May 2020. His undergraduate work included applied and theoretical mathematics. After graduating from Skidmore College, Dylan started veterinary school at St. George’s University in Grenada, West Indies, where he will be entering his second term. During his winter and summer vacations, Dylan works at Mill Brook Animal Clinic in Arlington, Massachusetts. In his free time, Dylan loves to work out and cook great meals. He also enjoys watching Netflix with Baxter, the geriatric cat he rescued when Baxter was thirteen.
