Irene has worked in the veterinary field for many years but has been with the SMAEC family since January of 2012. She has always felt that working in client services is not only her passion, but is also her calling. Irene feels strongly that animals are sensitive, intuitive creatures whom she has been blessed to have loved, lived with, and lost. Her life would have less meaning without her furry family. Irene looks forward to providing the best care to our clients and their pets.

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.
