Jess has always enjoyed working with animals, from the time she was tiny. She loves the science behind large animal reproduction, and enjoys working in a hospital that has provided her the opportunity to work with bovine and equine owners who share her passion. Her favorite thing about her job is working with the large animals and their owners. She says every animal and every owner has great stories to tell.

Jess’s dog, Daisi, is the clinic’s unofficial mascot, and gets to come to work with her each day, providing stress relief and love to any who need it. Jess also has three horses; two quarter horses, and a Belgian draft horse. She ropes and trail rides with her quarter horse, and with her Belgian, she shows in driving classes all across the Western United States. Jess also owns a small cow and calf operation out of her home farm.

When she’s not working, Jess enjoys competitive team roping on her trusty mare, Grin, and showing draft horses. If she’s not with her horses, Jess usually can be found in the mountains of Pocatello, camping and spending time with her family. Jess is also an incredible musician, and loves singing and playing music.
