Jess started out here this past July, and is starting out in the veterinary field as well after finally figuring out what she wanted to do: work with animals. She has a background with animals, working in 4H and showing horses in high school and she has always felt that she connects with animals. She loves getting to see how excited the animals are when they get picked up by their owners from boarding or after surgeries, as well as being able to assist in procedures. Jess has one dog at home, Sammy, a Collie/Lab mix and Baby Kitty, a 12 yr. old DSH. For fun, she likes hiking with her husband and Sammy, going camping, boating and fishing as well as gardening.
