Client Services Lead
Jennifer joined SMAEC in 2018. She recently moved to Minnesota from Chicago, where she worked in a veterinary clinic that saw exotics and contracted with the local zoo. Because of this, nothing that comes into a vet clinic surprises Jennifer, and she loves that every day can bring new adventures in the field. She also fostered dogs that needed special medical attention or needed more time to adjust to being in a home prior to adoption. She is currently working on a degree in Fisheries and Wildlife. Jennifer has three dogs, Daisy Mae, Vinny, and Muffins, that are her whole life. She loves music, creating art, cooking, and the outdoors.
Technician Assistant Lead
Katie joined SMAEC in July 2016. She graduated in 2018 from Dakota County Technical College with her Veterinary Technician Degree. She loves all kinds of animals, but her favorites are cows and sea turtles (they have cute faces). In Katie’s free time she enjoys attending and showing at car shows, going antique shopping and spending time with family. She shares her home with her two silly Boxers Clyde and Castle.
