Jenny grew up on a farm in Ashland, Kentucky, surrounded by horses, livestock, dogs and cats. This led to her interest in wanting to care for animals, so after graduating from Ohio Northern University, she worked at the Cleveland Zoo in Animal Programs. She then completed Bradford School’s vet tech program and is now a registered veterinary technician. She hopes to attend Ohio State for a doctorate degree in veterinary medicine. She shares her home with her “heart” dog, Barney the Barnacle, a Chow/Rottweiler mix she fell in love with as a tech student. She is mom to twin 2-year-old boys, so she has very little free time, and spends it playing with the boys, reading, dancing and enjoying downtime with her husband.
