Arty attends Eisenhower and is a graduate of ’23! He was born and raised in Wichita Kansas and is never far from adventure. He considers himself quite funny and confident most times. He has a passion for helping others and a unique talent for music theory and theater arts. Arty spends his time at home working on music, drawing, or taking care of his pets. He has three cats (Trixie, Rafiki, and Willis); one dog (Lucy); and two adorable parakeets (Ruru and Sophie).His plan is to attend K-State university right after they finish college and get an honorary bachelor’s degree in Vet Sciences. After that, he plans to work towards his doctorates degree in veterinarian medicine and sciences and exotics medicine. Arty’s original plan was to work towards a degree in ornithology (the study of birds) and leave Kansas to follow bird flight patterns and complex bird communication. Once he was hired at Prairie Ridge, he realized he wanted to work on internal medicines and help exotics of all kinds. Watching surgeries and asking questions has helped him figure out what he really wanted to do.
