Hi! My name is Jen, but many people call me JB. I grew up on a farm a few hours away before finishing college and coming to Toronto in 2006. I then spent 4 years working at a pet supply store while running my own dog walking business. Spending so much time outside, I often found injured animals that needed help. Inspired, I took a wildlife rehabilitation course that ignited my interest in medicine and was immediately drawn to the Veterinary Technician program at Seneca College. I graduated with honours in 2013 and took my licensing exams to become an RVT, picking up experience at a hospital in Newmarket before finding my home with Wellesley in early 2014. I took over as practice manager in late 2016, and couldn’t be happier to be in a position where I can help both pets and people!

Fun Fact: I love space exploration and I’ve been a member of the Planetary Society since 2012; I attended the Falcon Heavy rocket launch and my name is actually in space, on board NASA’s OSIRIS REx.
