Graduate Highlight - Veterinary Technician - Alexis Shearer
One raccoon. That was all it took to change Alexis Shearer's fate. When a young raccoon's mother passed away and there was no rehabilitation center in the county to take him, Ms. Shearer stepped in to help. It was then that she knew helping animals was her passion.
“When he was about ten months old, he got sick, and no vet would see him within three hours of us,” Ms. Shearer recounts. “I ended up saving him when no vet would. He went on to be happy and healthy and is in the wild. He made me want to make a difference and specialize in wildlife.”
Ms. Shearer flourished in Rockford Career College's veterinary technician program and graduated in December of 2018. She is excited to help animals in her new career and encourages anyone who has a heart for animals to consider this field as well. “You can't do great things if you're afraid of failure,” she says.
