Jessica joined Clinton Vet in 2019. She is from the Rockford/Loves Park area and currently lives with her fiance Justin who is a manager at Walmart. They share their home with 3 cats (Yoda, Princess, and Buttons), 1 dog (Wookiee), 1 box turtle (Pandorica), 1 ball python (Boba Fett), and 2 sugar gliders (Luke and Han). The majority of their pets were rescued or adopted
Jessica previously worked at Valley of the Kings animal sanctuary. She cared for farm animals, small exotics, lions, tigers, and bears (oh my)! The experiences she gained there helped her transition easily into the veterinary world. She is especially interested in exotics and rehabilitation within veterinary medicine.
In her free time she enjoys visiting Justin's family in Florida, gaming nights with friends, movies, and taking Wookiee on hikes or car rides. She also is an advocate for her medical condition of Ankylosing Spondylitis and recently helped promote a film.
Jessica's favorite part of working in vet med is being able to help patients and educate clients!
