Jennifer is a true Portland native. She was born and raised in the Laurelhurst neighborhood. Jennifer has always had a passion for animals. She became a client of Pet Samaritan Clinic in 1992 with her first true love- (a rescue from Oregon Humane Society), her Golden Retriever mix by the name of Lady. Growing up as a child and young adult Jennifer always dreamed of working at Pet Samaritan Clinic. In elementary school she wrote a report on animals and caring for them. In the report, she stated that she hoped to one day work at Pet Sam. In 2003 that childhood dream came true. She was hired on as a receptionist and has since moved up and is now the Hospital Manager – with her report hanging proudly in the lobby on display. She keeps herself busy with her two daughters, husband, their Great Dane –Cooper and their Munchkin cat – Snickelfritz. When not at the clinic, Jenn and her family enjoy going to the lake, spending time with friends and family and traveling.
Jennifer takes pride in the history of Pet Samaritan Clinic. She is ecstatic about the amount of passion and care that her staff gives to both the animals and their owners.
