Farida was born in Florida and raised in Colorado. She is currently a full time student studying to become a veterinarian. She was originally studying engineering but came to the conclusion that the future pay was not worth the eternal boredom one would have to endure. Farida currently has two fur babies with a third one coming in soon. Her fur babies consist of a cattle dog mix, a boxer mix, and soon a doberman. She might have a slight problem – she can’t seem to resist adopting animals, which is why she’s a great fit for the team at DACC!
