Jessica was working at Lang Sun Country Grove, a small café in Lake Alfred, when one day after work during a phone conversation with her mom, her mom suggested that she apply at Veterinary Healthcare Associates. Jessica laughed and said “They aren’t going to hire me. I have no experience.” Her mom replied, “You never know, just go in and apply,” so Jessica did. That same week, she received a phone call from Monya, asking her to come in for an interview. Jessica replied, “Oh my god, are you serious?” Needless to say, 11 years on, everything went well.
Since joining VHA, Jessica has grown to love is teaching others and giving them the opportunity to work with animals. Her favorite thing about working at VHA is the people–everyone is humble, kind, and always willing to help. At home, Jessica has 1 pet, a cat named Zeus, that she adopted through a client that regularly comes to VHA. He is the king of the house. When she’s not at work, Jessica has all kinds of hobbies, including shopping, hanging out with her mother and sister, spending quality time with her husband, going to the beach/pool, visiting theme parks, going to the movies, and going out to eat.
