Our Veterinary Technicians

Jen, RVT and Patient Care Coordinator

Education: Western Career College, A.S. – RVT, B.S. – Cal State East Bay

As supervising RVT, Jennifer is responsible for overseeing all nursing and patient care duties within the hospital. As a Registered Veterinary Technician, Jennifer is knowledgeable about all aspects of veterinary care. She has worked at All Bay Animal Hospital since 2004 and is a multitalented “star” within our hospital. You may see her at the reception desk, in an exam room with the doctor, or she may be invisible but invaluable in her duties assisting in surgery, intensive care, or obtaining samples for laboratory analysis. Jennifer can do it all and we are lucky to have her on our team. Jennifer enjoys spending time with her children and engaging in outdoor activities: camping, basketball, swimming and attending theme parks.

Leslie, RVT and Patient Care Leader

Education: Carrington College, A.S. – RVT

Leslie first joined All Bay Animal Hospital in 2010, as an intern and soon after, she was hired. Since then, Leslie has become a valued member of the All Bay Team. She graduated from Carrington College in February of 2011, earning an AS degree in Veterinary Technology. In May of 2011, Leslie took the state board exams, making her our newest RVT staff. “Growing up in a rural farming community I always loved animals and I dreamed of working with them,” Leslie states. “So, becoming an RVT is really a dream come true for me.” In addition to her own three dogs and two cats, she has a wonderful supportive husband, named Robert.

Jackie, RVT

Education: Western Career College, A.S. – RVT

Jackie graduated from Western Career College and has been one of our highly talented RVT’s for the past 4 years, a career she knew she wanted to have since she was just 4 years old. She’s skilled at many functions at All Bay, including room attendant, surgical assistant, dental cleanings and extractions, and you may even see her up at the Reception desk. In her spare time, she enjoys spending time with her family, and her two dogs, two cats, and the evil bunny she rescued when someone left her in a box outside on a 100 degree day.

Jennifer, RVT

Jen is a highly talented and valued RVT who is impassioned by helping animals recover, especially from serious disease or ailments, and by helping their owners know how to continue their care at home. Jen’s most rewarding experience was when a little kitten came in with severe diabetic shock and was on the verge of dying, after only ten minutes of treatment, the little kitten opened its eyes and started purring. He since has made a full recovery. Jen is a big animal lover with a pit bull named Chuey, a shih tzu named Mollie, four cats, and one ball python snake. She fell in love with one of her cats when she was nursing it back to health after having one of its front legs amputated. In what little free time she has, she enjoys dirt bikes, kayaking, sprint car racing, and just about any type of outdoor activity with her husband, daughter and dogs.

Sarah, RVT

Education: Western Career College, A.S. – RVT

Sarah received her education from Western Career College and has been an RVT for the past 12 years. She decided to become an RVT not only because of her love of animals, but she says also became an RVT because she needed to be able to afford all of her animals! She currently has three dogs and three cats but one of her cats thinks he is a dog so he is quite entertaining. Two of her dogs are Ibizan hounds and she just adores them. Sarah loves to camp, read, and learn about dog behavior, especially the dynamics of pack behavior. Perhaps one day she will find out why her cat believes he is a dog (he even stands up on his hind legs to “beg”).
