Naomye Jones, 4th Year Vet Student

Her favourite experiences in Saskatoon so far have been seeing the northern lights for the very first time and watching the amazing sunsets on endless horizons.

Both Naomye and Thanos love to hike, paddle board and perform canine agility together. Naomye also owns a ball python named Sporothrix, two rabbits named Elda and Edgar and numerous aquariums.
