Jen always knew that animals were her calling, and as a child always wanted to be a marine biologist. In fact, she still would like to end up focusing on marine biology after getting her degree in the topic. The path that lead her to veterinary work was when she lived in New York and worked at the Animal Medical Center. It’s one of the nation’s largest and most esteemed vet hospitals, and her work as a surgical assistant developed Jen’s interest in veterinary medicine. She shares her home with her human love, Randy, and her rescue pup Norman, who joined the family during Covid. Jen may have the most exciting hobbies of all! In addition to loving travel and national parks, she is studying circus arts!
