Jessica joined our team in January of 2019 with several years of experience in the veterinary industry, including client service and veterinary technician training. Since she was very young, Jessica has been involved with rehabbing squirrels and has helped rehabilitate several squirrel babies since she came to Turtle Creek. It is not uncommon for her to be seen around the hospital with a squirrel tucked in her pocket. Two fun facts about Jessica – her favorite color is blue, and she wishes she knew how to whistle. Jessica is a pet parent to two dogs, Millie and Poppy, and a cat Lilly. In her free time, she enjoys spending time outdoors and completing DIY projects around her home.
Client Care Coordinator
Jayde began her career at TCVMC in October 2019 as a Client Care Specialist. Her passion for medicine, animals and her positive, upbeat attitude made her the perfect fit for our team. In her time with us, she has grown immensely in our field. Now, as a Client Care Coordinator, she handles all operations at the front desk - though you might see her assisting our doctors and technicians with testing or procedures from time to time. Outside of work, she enjoys hiking, naps, video games, and Chipotle. Her husband, daughter, their dog, and two cats love her to the moon – and we do too!
