Jen started her veterinary career as a part-time nurse right here at Pittwater Animal Hospital while studying to become a vet. The experience couldn’t have hurt. She graduated from the University of Sydney with honours in 2007 and holds degrees in both veterinary science and biochemistry. Her first job as a vet at a mixed practice in Dubbo gave her the opportunity to work with small animals, horses and some farm stock. After a tick season back at PAH Jen disappeared to the UK where she worked in a mixed practice in Lincolnshire for a few months then moved south of London for a year. Next came a few months travelling around Europe. She returned to Australia to work in equine and small animal practice before rejoining us. Jen loves being a vet, especially surgery and emergency medicine. Her menagerie at home consists of Zak, a staffy cross; Lulu, a Jack Russell cross; and Angel, a retired racehorse. Outside of work Jen is into running and horse riding while also dabbling in painting and tennis.
