Jacqueline was born and raised in upstate NY. She knew from the time she was 5 years old that she wanted to pursue a career in veterinary medicine. Taking a leap of faith, since she never worked in a veterinary hospital, she attended SUNY Delhi where she earned her associate's degree in veterinary technology. Upon graduation, she received her veterinary technician license in 1988. She moved to Coral Springs, FL in 1989 and met her husband. A job transfer for her husband landed her in Tampa and she started working for VetCare in 1999 as a licensed technician. Although her ﬁrst passion is the nursing and care of the patients, she is very passionate about her team and leading them to success, both individually and as a team. During her free time, she is a puppy raiser for SEGD, enjoys outdoor activities, traveling, and spending time with her husband and 2 daughters. A trip up north to be with family is the ultimate get away from work!
