Jennifer was born in California but spent a lot of her childhood living in Arizona where her love of the outdoors began. She collected critters from the neighborhood, always busy outside. Her favorite activity was night swimming during the summer months. Jennifer’s first pet was a Doberman Shepherd mix named Sampson. Jennifer was too little to hook Sampson’s leash to his collar so Sampson would hold the leash in his mouth and walk with Jennifer along the Greenbelt.

Jennifer started her career as a hairdresser and owned her own salon for 13 years. During that time, she made trips to Arizona every chance she got, taking the kids and boat, and heading for the water. When the time was right she shut down her salon and moved to Arizona. Jennifer has greatly enjoyed becoming a part of the Advanced Animal Care team, helping people, and helping animals. Her goal is to be a great team leader.

She enjoys spending time on the water’s edge, hanging out with great friends, and being outside as often as possible (even if it’s to pick up dog poop).
