Jennifer grew up in Germantown, Maryland and always loved animals.  At the age of 12 when her rabbit, Comet got sick her and her mom took him to the vet. Comet needed fluids under his skin at home and in that moment sitting on the floor of their kitchen with her mom and Comet she knew she wanted to be a Vet Tech! She started working in the veterinary field in 2004 and knew she found a job that she could do for the rest of her life. Jenn graduated from Northern Virginia Community College with an A.A.S in Veterinary Technology then sat for and passed the VTNE to become a Registered Veterinary Technician in the state of Maryland.  She loves having the ability to work hands on with patients and their families while still managing the daily operations of the  hospital.  Jennifer worked at MBVC previously as a veterinary technician and left for a short time to gain experience in an emergency hospital setting.  She came back to the MBVC family in February of 2011 to become the Practice Manager. Her newest venture at MBVC is Rehabilitation! Jennifer is working towards her CCRP (Certified Canine Rehabilitation Practitioner) through the University of Tennessee.  If you have a pet with a soft tissue injury, orthopedic surgery or overall geriatric changes that could benefit from Rehabilitation you will get to work with her. She currently lives in North Potomac with her husband, Brendan, their son Cooper and daughter Charlotte.  If you see her out and about come say hi!!  They share their home with two dogs who you may see from time to time at the hospital: Oscar, an American Staffordshire Terrier, and Amber, a Golden Retriever.  When she's not at the hospital, Jennifer enjoys spending time with her family and friends, and dabbling in photography.

Jennifer is a member of the State of Maryland Veterinary Technician Committee, an active member of AAHA (The American Animal Hospital Association), VHMA (Veterinary Hospital Managers Association), MDVTA (Maryland Veterinary Technician Association) and NAVTA (National Association of Veterinary Technicians in America)
