Dr. Jane talks about the best ways you can follow your dreams to work in whatever field you want. The most important thing she says is to pursue higher education, and to speak with people in the field and ask them to tell their story of how they pursued their own career. If you want to work with animals contact people in your community who work with animals such as veterinarians, staff at local animal shelters or zoos and ask them to tell you their story.
Dr. Jane is indeed a vegetarian. She became a vegetarian after reading about intensive farming, not knowing about what the animals actually went through. The next time she looked at a piece of meat, Dr. Jane thought, this symbolizes fear, pain and death.
