Inside the Animal Academy Podcast I speak with people from all different areas of specialization’s regarding their experiences with a human/animal connection. My hope is to broaden all of our perspectives on what’s available and to spark interest in others that also appreciate the role that animals play in our lives.
I met Dr. Pam Linden while attending the University of Tennessee‘s veterinary social work program. I admired her passion and energy and learned from her expertise and guidance throughout the program. She has some exciting programs to share with us and I am honored to speak with Dr. Linden about these new developments in the field during this episode of the Animal Academy Podcast.
