Jessica Urban, DVM

Jessica Urban, DVM

Dr. Jessica Urban grew up in Southwest Michigan and graduated from Michigan State University with a certificate in veterinary technology (2007) and a BS in Zoology (2008). After receiving her undergraduate degree, she initially worked as a licensed veterinary technician until she decided to pursue her dream of becoming a veterinarian. While attending Saint George’s, she was an active member of the Student Chapter of the American Veterinary Medical Association (SAVMA), the Veterinary Business Association (VBMA), and was president of the Grenada Chapter of the International Veterinary Students’ Association (IVSA). While at the helm of IVSA, she helped host student exchange groups from multiple countries, attended international meetings representing the club, and began a One Health One Medicine (OHOM) Lecture Series that lasts until this day. She graduated in January 2017 from Saint George’s University School of Veterinary Medicine.

In the summer of 2015 Dr. Urban’s love for travel and the OHOM concept led her aboard the USNS Comfort on the Continuing Promise Mission. On the humanitarian mission Dr. Urban represented World Vets and worked alongside the US Army veterinarians to provide veterinary care and disaster preparedness and relief to underserved countries in South America and the Caribbean. During the mission, somewhere over the ocean, a life boat drill occurred and a chance meeting led to a tour of the ship’s engine room. Months later that chance meeting turned into a love story and, after being separated by countries and then states, Dr. Urban was happy to have the same home base as well as a piece of the ship she eventually called her own.

Dr. Urban’s goal is to practice quality medicine and provide exemplary patient care. She possesses a vast amount of technical skill and clinical experience in small and mixed animal practice from her previous career as a technician and hopes to use it to her patient’s advantage. Her interests include client education, dentistry, soft tissue surgery, public health and the OHOM concept, as well as disaster preparedness and relief.

Dr. Urban and her boyfriend, Dave, live with a “Doperman” (at least that’s the way it should be spelled) named Samson, two cats, Goldfish (yes, he’s orange) and Marlin, a Betta fish named Methuselah and an aquarium full of fish. On her days off Dr. Urban can be found watching movies or hiking with her Doperman at Mt. Trashmore or First Landing State Park.
