Claire Morissette Girardin '90
Saint Dom's provided me with an amazing supportive place to build a strong foundation and become a well-rounded person and develop the skills I needed to succeed.
Ever since I can remember, my career goal had always been to become a veterinarian. I worked really hard in high school to get good grades and was really involved in sports and extracurricular activities. I was able to keep building on that at the University of Maine and then realize my dream by graduating with my VMD from the University of Pennsylvania in 1999. For the past 20 years I have had a very fulfilling and rewarding career, doing something I love as a small animal veterinarian.
My Dad attended Saint Dom's as well and my parents put all six of us through Saint Dom's. My Dad was a founding member of the Key Club, and I was lucky enough to be a senior the year that girls were allowed to join. It is really rewarding to be able to see my children also participating in something at Saint Dom's that their Pepere helped to start.
