She hopes to attend the University of Wisconsin School of Veterinary Medicine and own her own practice one day.Glennon began her proficiency by working at Amherst Veterinary Hospital in Amherst during her sophomore year of high school. Cleaning around the clinic was her original responsibility and soon she was able to assist with appointments.
