"I came here to fly fish for salmon and to hunt a mountain goat with my bow," said Rice. "I really love Ketchikan and working at this hospital; I felt at home the moment I stepped off the ferry."
Rice received her training
at the Wyoming State Veterinary Laboratory while she
was manager of a necropsy department in Laramie, Wyoming.
Her certification requires a Bachelor of Science degree, on the
job experience, and passing a written and practical exam given
by the American Society of Clinical Pathologists.
