Growing up in Massachusetts, Jen knew that she wanted to be a vet from a young age. She attended Brandeis University, receiving her undergraduate degree in Biological Sciences. During her gap year between college and veterinary school Jen worked as an equine ambulatory veterinary technician, as well as a handler at her local dog daycare. Jen attended Tufts Cummings School of Veterinary Medicine in North Grafton, MA. When not in the office, Jen spends her free time baking, hiking and exploring, spending time with family and friends, and watching too much TV with her cat Jupiter.
