Jessica was raised on a cattle ranch north of Elko, NV. Ranching fostered her love for animals, especially horses and cattle. This passion lead her to pursuing her Bachelor's degree in Animal Science at Cal Poly State University, San Luis Obispo. She then continued her education at College of Southern Idaho by completing the Veterinary Technology program. Jessica completed her externship hours at the clinic as a Veterinary Technician Assistant prior to graduation in 2018. Once licensed, Jessica began working at Idaho Equine in Nampa, ID so that she could pursue her interests in livestock. Jessica moved back in 2020 to be closer to family, assist on their ranch, and work at the clinic. Jessica’s advice to pet owners is to make sure you are prepared by having transportation for your pets, big or small!
