“But, I could show you guys, I make cat houses, I make scarves, hats, I’ve made dog sweaters, so I’ve gifted some of my friends dog sweaters. I will crochet in class sometimes because I mentioned, I have narcolepsy and moving my hands helps me stay awake and I can do it and listen to the professor. The professor probably thinks I’m not paying any attention to them, but I am, I promise I am! And I’ll sit there and make cat houses in class for people.”

Our guest today is Kim Layne. Kim is veterinary student at Washington State University College of Veterinary Medicine. Medicine has always been a passion of hers and she considered pursuing human medicine, however she really found her place when someone suggested she look into veterinary medicine. Outside of veterinary medicine, Kim was named Miss Idaho and competed in the Miss USA pageant in 2020. We won’t spoil it for you, but she did AMAZING! We talk about how veterinary medicine may have helped in surprising ways in her pageant competitions and how her pageant work may influence her approach to veterinary medicine. It’s a great conversation and we are so excited to share this journey with you!
