Jessica grew up on a little farm in Port Hood, Cape Breton. She grew up around dogs, horses, chickens, pigs and lots of cats. Since a little girl she knew that she wanted to work with and help animals one day. After high school she left her small town in Cape Breton and moved to the big city to attend Maritime Business College for Veterinary Technology. During that time she said she was very lucky to be able to do her internship at the Burnside Vet Hospital. She graduated at the end of 2017 and later got hired on to start her career at Burnside Veterinary Hospital. She is working as a veterinary assistant now and loves every day. After work she loves to go home and snuggle up with her own little cat Lucy.
