She completed the National Board Exams for Certification in January 1999.She immediately secured a permanent position with the Marion Vernon Memorial Animal Clinic, solely operated for the O.S.P.C.A . Proving her excellent skills in the Veterinary field and handling of the Administration duties perfectly,enabled her to be promoted to the position of Director of Veterinary Medicine for the Clinic, which she held until July 2005.
