Jenna is a Colorado native born and raised here in Boulder County. After high school, she enrolled at the University of Colorado Boulder. After a few years there, Jenna took a job at a local pet services store where she was placed in the grooming salon. After 5 years there, she had ascended to the position of Grooming Salon Manager and was certified to teach other employees how to groom. She left the pet services store for a grooming position at a veterinary hospital here in Boulder. After 3 years there, seeing how veterinary medicine worked and after falling in love with the medical side of pet care, Jenna decided to go to school for Veterinary Technology. She attended Bel-Rea Institute of Animal Technology and graduated in September of 2015 and passed the Veterinary Technician’s National Exam in December 2015 with her CVT certification.
Jenna did her technician internship at Alpenglow’s sister hospital, Aspen Meadow Veterinary Specialists in Longmont and was instantly hooked on specialty medicine. More specifically, surgery and emergency. After graduation she was hired into the Surgery Department here at Alpenglow and has been loving it ever since. Jenna enjoys the challenges of surgery and all the learning and chances to build on and improve her skills. At home, she is “mom” to 4 dogs and 1 cat! Yes you read that right. Izzy-a Miniature Pinscher, Motley- a Rat Terrier, Deuce- a Pit Bull, Blu- a Doberman Pinscher and finally Pawsie- a Domestic Short Hair. When Jenna isn’t working, she enjoys the outdoors with her dogs, going to concerts and spending time with the people she cares about most!!
