Jennifer is a mom to 5 humans (3 boys and 2 girls) and a critter mom to Major (4-year-old Pittie) and Griffin (10-year-old longhair kitty). She is currently pursuing her Certified Veterinary Practice Manager designation and hopes to have it within the next couple of years. Jennifer has worked in many veterinary clinics but recently decided to work for one that, in addition to dogs and cats, saw exotics as well.
Originally from Virginia Beach, Jennifer’s father was a veterinarian who owned a practice on Little Creek Road back in the day. Jennifer is hoping to move back to the Tidewater area in the near future.
Karen, Social Media/Marketing Manager
While working for Norfolk Public Schools, Karen discovered a hidden talent – the ability to create campaigns and slogans that would entertain yet educate all at the same time. Retiring as a Media Specialist in 2009 gave her the opportunity to begin working with animals and their parents in a way that would benefit them and Pet Care Veterinary Hospital as well as provide her with a new, highly creative, and challenging career.
One of Karen’s side jobs in the ‘70’s through the late ‘90’s was free lance writing, specializing in music and the people who created it. Working on press releases and autobiographical liner notes taught her how to creatively construct sentences that would attract even the most reluctant of readers. Great experience that prepared her for today’s social media fans.
Working with domestic rabbits has been a mainstay in her life since her college days. She has been involved in local rabbit rescues since 1988 and considers the rabbit to be her spirit animal.
