Makayla chose veterinary medicine because she wanted to help people care for their best friends. She loves everything about vet med; her team, the animals, and the interesting cases, but especially the gross parts. Her belief is the oozier, the better.

Makayla’s dog is a loyal rottweiler mix, “A boy named Sue”. He is all happiness and love, and will smile if you yell his name in a high-pitched voice. She also has a beautiful AQHA mare named Blossom, who has carried her over mountains, through rivers, and across many sagebrush fields chasing after cows.

At home, Makayla loves spending time doing anything with her husband, Jonah. They love riding their horses, shooting guns, going fishing, camping, and even enjoy doing the list of never-ending chores around their mini farm.
