Jessica earned her A.S. in Veterinary Technology at St. Petersburg College in 2002 and has been working as a CVT ever since. Her primary focus involves small animal and emergency medicine. Her skills are all-encompassing and varied. She enjoys all aspects of emergency nursing, especially how different each case may be. She joined our AA Animal ER Center’s team in 2014. Prior to that, she worked in a day practice treating dogs, cats, and exotics for 15 years. Outside of nursing, she has been a professional, competitive dancer for 15 years and taught on the national level for an additional 4 years. She currently teaches dance performance at various high schools and is heavily involved with local high school band and color guard programs. Jessica has many cats she shares her Tarpon home with, and one of her favorite animals is the opossum.
