Cai Dunne is originally from New Jersey and moved to Florida to work as a veterinary surgery assistant in emergency medicine. Though working with animals was rewarding, it was her personal interactions and relationships with clients that caused a change in interest towards human medicine and mechanics.  Originally enrolled at Bennington College, she pursued a chemistry track before taking a gap year to better decide her future with education. Intrigued by anatomy and neuroscience, she is now pursuing an EMT certification as well as a biomedical major. With years of experience working in both general and emergency practices, she feels they have taught her the necessary skills needed for medical offices to create a positive, happy and safe environment for clients to walk into. On her weekends Cai enjoys weightlifting, watching scary movies and playing with her 8 year old Chihuahua rescue Emmi.
