Howard grew up in central Pennsylvania in the middle of nowhere. He likes animals, so he went to Florida Institute of Technology and received his B.S. in Marine Biology. Deciding that that wasn’t working closely enough with animals, he went to graduate school for an Animal Behavior degree. When that still wasn’t working closely enough with animals for him, he decided to pursue Veterinary School. Howard lives with his wife Janie and his cat Malcolm. He has been working at Jefferson Animal Hospital since January 2016 to gain experience and successfully apply to veterinary school.
