Jamie and her family always had animals while she was growing up, including dogs, cats, horses, cows, chickens, goats, and even a few squirrels, chipmunks, raccoons, and a skunk! For her, animal care has always been a part of life. When the opportunity arose for her to put her experience in customer service to good use in the world of pet care, Jamie jumped at the chance.
Jamie is originally from rural western Michigan and moved to Florida a number of years ago. Prior to joining the team here at Dr. Kathy’s Veterinary Care, she worked in customer service as a member of the automotive industry for 15 rewarding years. She brought her own pets here to the hospital before she became an employee—when a position opened up, Jamie was the perfect fit! Now, she’s the clinic’s Head Receptionist.
Around the hospital, Jamie loves to interact with pet owners and their furry companions on a daily basis, and she especially likes reassuring pet parents when it’s called for. She prides herself and the whole team on fully taking care of both pet and owner during their time here at the clinic.
At home, Jamie and her boyfriend live with two dogs and two cats: Jazz, an American Bulldog/Pit Bull mix, Kamra the Cane Corso, and two sibling felines named Springwells and Carlisle. Much of Jamie’s free time is also spent with animals—she’s an avid dog trainer and is also very active in the world of fostering and rescue. To date, she’s rescued and fostered more than 40 pets!
