Nic became interested in veterinary medicine because he realized the vast amount of diversity and potential it provided to further his education in a field that he loved. He enjoys being around all of the animals and the work environment while at the same time providing care for them. Some of his hobbies outside of work include hiking, rock climbing, fixing things, four-wheeling, and learning new things. He acquired his job at Lone Mountain through a G.E.D. program in Virginia City. Although he was unsure of how far he wanted to go in the veterinary field upon first starting at Lone Mountain in 2011, he feels that one day he may continue his education even further and become a veterinarian.
