"I actually grew up on a farm. So, I had all kinds of animals."
And those animals influenced her career choices.
"I really wanted to go to school to be a vet. But, I didn`t want to leave North Dakota."
Although she wasn`t able to be the veterinarian she hoped to be, she did open a successful business where she surrounded herself with all types of animals.
"I just decided this would be the easiest way to deal with it. I couldn`t be a vet. So, I would just decided I would do this. So, I can be around the animals all the time."
