        " I have too many dreams to do the same one twice. I found a way that I could help animals without having to be the guy in charge," Gillespie said. The Massachusetts native said she never imagined doing the two things that she loves. "I like animals and I like teaching, so I am happy," she said. 

Using this passion to fuel her as she serves on the SEAALAS, Gillespie's goal is to offer an outreach program to introduce any FVSU student to veterinary technology. For assistance she is working with the Society of Laboratory Animal Veterinary Technicians, which shares clinical, surgical, and technical ideas among its membership. 

FVSU offers the only four-year veterinary technology program in Georgia, with the spring 2019 student enrollment currently at more than 100. For more information about the program visit FVSU
