Jessica, RVT

Practice Manager

I am the Practice Manager and a Certified Veterinary Technician here at Edgewood Animal Hospital. I have always known I wanted to work in the animal industry. I was constantly harassing my parents for a pet or to add on an addition to our family, I went through a lot of fish and hermit crabs growing up. The thing I love about my job is knowing that every day I go to work our team helps make a difference in not only a pets life, but their Owner’s as well. The joy that animals bring people is remarkable. When I am not working I enjoy spending time at home with my 3 feline friends; Opie (who some of you may remember living at EAH), Addy and last but not least El Gato. Other activities I enjoy outside the animal world include traveling, camping, yoga, and spending time with family and friends.

Registered Veterinary Technician

Ever since I was a kid I always wanted to work in the veterinary field. I graduated from Kirkwood Community College in 2014 with my degree in veterinary technology. I have worked in several small animal clinics as well as spending some time as an intern at the Boston zoo. I love all animals and found EAH is the perfect fit for me.   I live in Cedar Rapids with my shiba inu "Miso". When I'm not working I enjoy reading, hiking, swimming and going to Packers games.

I have always loved animals since I was first introduced to my German Shepherd, Doc many many many years ago. Going out to my friend’s family cattle farm & bottle feeding cattle was another reason why I wanted to work in the veterinary field, oh & my love for big cats. I like to think that I’m making a difference in pets’ lives by educating the whole circle of care that’s involved. I don’t see myself doing anything else besides being a vet tech, just like I don’t think I could live without a pet. I currently have 2 pets, a Schnauzer mix named Jane & a short haired cat named Rosie. I make the point to treat client’s pets like my own.

Veterinary Technician

I’ve worked at a number of clinics over the years and none have compared to the FAMILY of EAH. Obviously, our patients can’t verbalize to us what is wrong. As a veterinary technician, the challenge of assisting my doctors in healing our patients without words is something that invigorates me daily. I’m driven to treat every patient as if they were my own fur baby.

Those wet noses, tail wags and bear hugs prove to me that what we do is heal, bringing those four-legged kiddos back to themselves. Or, the disgusted looks we get for giving vaccinations tell me “ugh, I got woke up from my nap for this?”

Every day is different and offers a new learning experience in the life of a veterinary technician. It’s what we do. I look forward to being a part of your pet’s care at EAH.

I could not be happier that I have the opportunity to work with animals every day. Growing up I have learned that animals are more compassionate and more loving than most people and being able to help and care for them is truly a gift. Outside of work I enjoy spending time with my family and friends, taking care of my pets at home, and trying new food.

There hasn’t been a time in my life that I haven’t been around or had some animal as a pet. There has been a wide range of dogs, cats, guinea pigs, hamsters, cattle, chickens, horses, sheep, goats, and fish in my life. Since I was little, I always felt this pull to be around animals, even if they were well over 1,000 lbs or had the sharpest claws I’ve ever felt. Most times I would just sit outside and watch them interact with each other. I loved being near them and seeing their behavior change depending on who or what came near. I believe this desire of wanting to know why an animal acts a certain way while I was young led me to be who I am today.

It’s amazing to think about how my inquisitive background as a child, and my animal loving family set me up to be in a career where I can continue to learn, study and now help animals in a way that I never would have thought before. Being surrounded by animals every day and helping them in any way I can is where I am meant to be.

Veterinary Technician

I started in the veterinary field somewhere around 1999 when I had a large tote labeled “Ericka’s Vet Clinic” that was filled with TY Beanie Babies. I have always had a soft spot in my heart for animals. My friends and family always joke about how the sick, injured, or stray animals always make their way to my doorstep and I can never turn them away. I have 3 cats that I love dearly. Ironman and Batman are my oldest. I picked them up from a farm in 2008 when they were only 8 weeks old. My youngest cat is Mowgli. He came into the clinic in June of 2015 and was only 2 weeks old. He was in need of some TLC. I told myself (and my husband) that I was only going to foster him and then adopt him out… I learned that fostering is not a good idea for me. Mowgli is now a part of our family forever! I graduated from the Veterinary Technician program in May of 2015. I married my high school sweetheart in October of 2015. I enjoy spending time with my family, friends, and cats of course. I also love reading, watching movies, doing outdoor activities, exercising, and going on vacations. I am so happy I chose to work in the veterinary field. I love that I have the opportunity to make a difference in the lives of many animals and their owners!

Registered Veterinary Technician

I’ve been a veterinary technician for ten years now. When I was little, I always dreamed of becoming a veterinarian and helping animals. While in high school, I found out about the technician program at Kirkwood. I thought that would be a great opportunity to try out my career path and make sure it suited me. After finishing the program, I realized being a technician was way more rewarding for me and I gained more hands on care with the pets. I decided to stay a technician and not pursue a veterinary degree and that brings us to today!

I never thought wiping drool out of my co-workers hair or having to “de-fur” myself sounded glamorous but it’s become part of my daily life; my passion. From a very young age I was the child corralling my extended family’s 4 legged members and not putting them down until my parents drug me home (most of the time kicking and screaming; begging for my very own pet). I was persistent: I had bunnies, gerbils, guinea pigs, fish, and hermit crabs. When I was 11 we got a tenacious miniature schnauzer named bailey. Bailey was 4 when he became very sick. After several surgeries and hospital stays he lost his battle. At that point in my life I became very interested in veterinary medicine and the people that cared for my best friend and showed us so much compassion until the very end.  When I began my career at EAH I found a new love for coming to work every day to care for animals and the humans that love them. I could be having the worst day but all it takes is a lick on the hand from a dog, a sweet purr from a big ol’ kitty or a new puppy or kitten to snuggle to make it worth every second!
