Meet Jessicia - Reception
Jessica was raised in Nevada City and has always been passionate about animals. She was unsure if she wanted to pursue a career in the animal medical field until she traveled in Costa Rica for a few months. The helplessness she felt not having the knowledge she needed to give medical care to the injured street dogs who would approach her was overwhelming, and she decided it was time to step up and follow her heart... which led her to Sierra Pet Clinic. She now gets to learn something new every day and is proud to tell people where she works. In her spare time, Jessica enjoys spending time with her old Labrador, going on adventures with her friends and wonderful boyfriend, and taking many naps. She looks forward to helping you and your fur baby on your next visit to SPC!
