Hi my name is Jessica and I'm a receptionist here at SWACC. I started working with animals while still in high school. I have a very spoiled cat named Otto. When I'm not at the animal hospital I enjoy being outdoors and watching wildlife.



I started working at SWACC in July of 2011. I previously worked with Dr. Dahl for four years at a previous location. I enjoy reading and gardening. I am owned by my 17 year old cat Hugger!



I initially joined the SWACC team in Fall of 2014 as a kennel assistant. I became a receptionist in January of 2016 and I love it! I love interacting with patients but it's wonderful getting to know the families who love our furry friends so much. My house is a zoo with three dogs and four cats.  I love to hike and listen to all kinds of music!
