Jess Treatment Coorindator

Meet Jess, Our Treatment Team Coordinator!

Jess is also a Licensed Veterinary Technician. You've probably gotten the chance to meet her a time or two, and if you have then you already know & love her! She was born and raised here in Omaha, NE. She started a part time job in vet med many years ago & found out she has a knack for it. She stepped away from the field for a short while before realizing this is where God wants her. We keep her very busy here at the hospital, & she is a jack of all trades! Always doing a little bit of everything.

When she isn't here at the hospital she is spending time with her husband & their three kids. Spending time outdoors is an activity that her whole family loves, and it takes up a lot of their free time when the weather allows. If she isn't outside in the garden, hunting, fishing, kicking around a soccer ball, or grilling/cooking/baking, then she is cheering her kids on from the sidelines for various sports & dance.

Jess has a dog named Lea at home that is her running partner, a great bird dog, & her sounding board. Lea has a turtle friend at home named James that is super friendly & roams around to hang out with family members that are nearby!
