Jennifer grew up in Bridgend and from a very early age knew she wanted to become a veterinary nurse and own a 'lilac BMW'.
She enrolled on a National Diploma in Animal Management course at Pencoed College at sixteen. After gaining her Diploma, Jennifer volunteered at a local kennels for two years, whilst looking for a veterinary nursing role. During this time, she managed to convince her parents to allow her to adopt a collieXcocker spaniel, called Lucy Loo.
Jennifer has been in practice for eight years, moving to Valley Vets in 2011. She was recently promoted to the position of Deputy Head Vet Technician at our Cardiff Hospital.
Jennifer has interests in most animals, her main priority being their welfare and comfort when in her care. She is very protective of animals in general. However, her biggest passion is for cats, of which she has five - ' Fudge', 'Daisy', 'Keira', 'Poppy' and 'Custard' – all lovingly hand reared.
She is affectionately known as the ‘cat whisperer’ or (alternatively) as the ‘crazy cat lady’ !
Jennifer has future plans to study in animal dentistry and feline behaviour, once she has completed her current Veterinary Nursing qualifications. One of her longer term ambitions is to run her own boarding cattery.
In her spare time, she is a keen dancer, loves the occasional run and dog walking.
