Veterinary Assistant / Training Coordinator
Jamie has been at Sunset since June 2014 as an experienced veterinary assistant. She has been in the veterinary industry for 15 years! She started out as a kennel attendant in a large veterinary practice in Sacramento and worked her way up to a veterinary assistant for a veterinary dental specialist, Dr. Kornfeld. Jamie has attended a veterinary technology program and has gained experience in patient care, client education, and emergency medicine. She really has become an essential part of the patient care team at Sunset! Jamie loves to do many things in her free time. She loves to make jewelry for her family and friends and has been known to sell a few pieces along the way! She gets outdoors every chance she gets to see our beautiful Pacific coast or just to take mini adventures to the mountains! She resides with her fiancee and two adorable four-legged friends Ansel the kitty, and Dutch, her border collie. Jamie says the thing she likes most about the veterinary industry is her patients and the bonds she makes with them while they are under her care. She says one of the most important parts of the healing process is making them feel calm and comfortable by trying to do things that relieve their stress and one of the ways to accomplish that is to talk to them and give them all hugs!
Jenny has been with the Sunset family for about three years. She initially went to school to become a Technician Assistant but has since decided to further her education at UC Davis to become a nurse. Jenny has a thirst for knowledge and loves learning new and challenging things as well as teaching her two dogs, Nova and Shatzie, a bunch of new tricks. When Jenny is not being a full-time student or working here, she loves the outdoors. Whether it be hiking, camping, or going to the lake and having some fun, she takes her two fur babies with her. Jenny also loves spending time with her family barbecuing and just hanging out at the house. Jenny loves a challenge and feels most successful when she is able to help a fearful dog feel more comfortable here with us.
