I’m Jennifer and I spent the last 12 years being a stay at home mom of 3. Now that they are all in school I decided to pursue a dream ive had for as long as I can remember! I got accepted into the Veterinary Technology Program at MWCC and I couldn’t be happier being a part of the TVH team where I am learning so much about the field while attending school! When I’m not in class, studying, or working I enjoy spending quality time with my children, playing games together, watching movies, and finding fun places to explore. I have 4 fur babies; my dog Ruby, my 2 cats Misty and Macy, and a rat named Stormy! Taking care of my children and fur babies is what makes me the happiest, but I also enjoy being creative with painting and crochet in my spare time.
