A Delightful Coincidence
Seung will be entering his last year of veterinary school at Colorado State University. On top of his busy academic load, he manages to work part time as a technician at Fort Collins Veterinary Emergency Clinic. As a way of figuring out which area of specialization to pursue following graduation he decided to experience an externship in a large emergency/specialty hospital. His wife Stephanie heard my NPR interview on Fresh Air with Terry Gross and suggested that Seung consider my hospital. Being the good husband that he is, he did exactly that- an externship was arranged. Imagine his surprise (and mine) when Seung learned that one of his coworkers at the Emergency Clinic is none other than my 22-year-old son, Jacob! Seung has stayed in our home and worked at my hospital this week. He’s an exceptional student who is going to go far in the veterinary profession, and we’ve enjoyed his company enormously. What a delightful coincidence!
