Why Is She So Awesome?

Jeanna has a way of making everyone around her feel calm, even in the most difficult situations. She doesn’t take what happens in vet med personally, but she delivers personalized, caring, and empathetic service to our clients. She has a wonderful way of getting all the personalities of our hospital to blend together to do what we do every day. She’s not afraid to be honest and always delivers criticism in a tactful and helpful
way. Above all else, Jeanna is the biggest patient advocate I’ve had the pleasure of knowing. It’s the thing she puts above all else while at—and outside of—work.

How Does She Go Above and Beyond?

Jeanna is never afraid of anything. Have a patient that’s afraid? No problem—she’s there with empathy, a kind voice, and sedatives! Complicated case? Don’t worry—she’s there to ensure all treatments get done correctly, on time, and while keeping the patient comfortable and calm. Employee issue? Not to worry—Jeanna will be there with honesty, compassion, and a plan to see that employee succeed. Hard day? Jeanna brings the calm and humor to get us all through!
