Jessica was born in Marianna, Pennsylvania. She moved to Fort Erie when she was 14 years old. She received an equine technician certificate from I.C.A.N.T.E.R. in Ridgeway, as well as completed a veterinary assistant course with Stratford Career Institute in 2013. She’s always had a passion for animals ever since she was a little girl. When she was little, you’d often find her at her grandparents’ farm, playing with the cats, dogs, pigs or cows. Before Jessica was born, her grandparents used to breed and sell Appaloosa horses. Even though Jessica was not around to be a part of this, it is in her blood. The appaloosa breed is her favorite breed of horse! One day she wishes to own one of her own! If she wasn’t at the farm with the grandparents, she was in the woods trying to find some living thing to take care of. Her mom was NOT impressed the day she brought home a black snake! Growing up, Jessica always said she was going to be a professional chef, or a vet. Although she never made it to vet school, she loves what she does. She is a part of helping all our beloved pets, and she does it with passion.
Prior to coming to Borderview, Jessica worked at an after-hours veterinary emergency clinic, where she gained valuable experience and knowledge, no only hands-on, but one-on-one with the veterinarian. In Jessica’s spare time she loves to spend time with her family, go camping, swim, horse back ride, and more. She has a little girl who wants to be a veterinarian when she is older — she is an animal-lover, just like her mama. Jessica also has a Beagle named Blue. he is about 30 lbs of solid love, kisses and cuteness! She also has 2 Flemish Giant rabbits. These big gals’ will also steal your heart the moment you look at their huge ears!! Piper and Pepper are both outdoor rabbits, who are the most spoiled you will ever meet. They just received a gift of a new (huge!) rabbit-house, and boy, oh boy, do they love it! Jessica joined the BVH team in January, 2019 and quickly settled in here. She looks forward to working with all of us here and is very excited to meet each and every one of you!!!
