Originally Hails From:

South Carolina

From the good ol’ southern state of South Carolina, Tifaney is currently attending Ross University’s School of Veterinary Medicine on St. Kitts. She plans to be there for another 2 1/2 years. She’s living the dream, as some would call it, and some days, it is true. Learning the anatomy of a dog and all that entails while at the same time learning to adapt to a different climate can be difficult at times. But does she regret her move? Absolutely not.

While scary, amazing, and nerve-wracking at times, she considers herself very blessed for all that is currently happening in her life and what the future may hold.
