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!!!
