Jasmine

Veterinary Technician

Jasmine is a Fox College graduate and a Fear Free Certified veterinary technician. She is bilingual and enjoys working in veterinary medicine because she gets the chance to interact with pets and assist in providing them with the care they need. She loves creating a positive experience at the vet so her patients get lots of cuddles and treats! In her free time, she enjoys spending time with her fur babies, Chuy (Chihuahua) and Aries (Cane Corso). They are the complete opposite in size but regardless, she calls them her “partners in crime”! She also enjoys shopping and hanging out with family and friends.

Mary

Veterinary Technician

Mary was in the communications field for many years before moving on to veterinary medicine, which she considers more rewarding. She is currently studying Veterinary Technology at Penn Foster College and recently completed Fear Free Certification.

She feels there is no better way to spend her time than doing something she loves alongside people who feel the same! There is never a dull moment and she enjoys the constant learning experience. She says that the best part of this profession is that it allows us to make a difference. Whether it’s preventative healthcare or assisting an older companion to pass with compassion and dignity – we get to make an impact daily.

She and her boyfriend Tom share their home with two Collies, our sassy senior gal Belle and our sweet-natured good boy Seamus. When not working, she enjoys watercolor painting, photography, and reading.

Mary is looking forward to building great relationships with all our clients and patients at Homewood Veterinary Care!
