Jonathon Stott loves nothing more than his family and watching his kids grow up, but things will be even sweeter when he has his dream job — caring for animals that need it.
Jonathon plans to return to his home state of Utah next summer and has signed a contract at a mixed animal practice in Roosevelt.
Jonathon chose veterinary medicine largely to give back and pay it forward. It’s why he was a peer advisor at Utah State University before attending WSU. As a peer advisor, Jonathon helped students create four-year plans for their college careers and discussed their strengths and what they could do to be more successful.
Jonathon and his wife have two daughters, Emma, 4, and Sadie, 2, and a son, Jace, 3 months.
The young family enjoys frequenting local parks, the DEFY Moscow trampoline park, and Kamiak Butte.
Jonathon said hands-on work during his clinical year at WSU has given him the experience and helped him apply the knowledge he has learned the past three years. It also reminds him of why he wanted to be a veterinarian.
“It’s a career that encourages continued education and allows me to serve those in my community,” he said.
