Our Dedicated Staff

Jessica: Practice ManagerJessica: Practice Manager

Jessica has always had a passion for veterinary medicine and knew from a young age that a career in the field was where she wanted to be. She started out in 2011 as veterinary assistant, and in 2019 she not only earned her degree as a registered veterinary technician, but also began her role as practice manager. These dual positions not only allow her to ensure the smooth running of a team, but also keep her involved in the process of helping to keep your pets happy and healthy. Jessica shares her home with 3 cats and 2 dogs, and in her spare time she loves horseback riding and spending time with her family.

Christine has always been an animal lover and entered the veterinary field in 1997.  Christine is well versed in every facet of veterinary practice, both in front of and behind the desk, and finds great satisfaction in helping to enrich pets' lives and owner awareness.  As a valuable member of the Happy Pet team, she brings compassion, practicality, humor, and focus.  She adopted her senior rescue dog, Weaver, in 2021 and is proud to have been a part of the Happy Pet experience since its inception in 2004.

Emma received her Associates Degree in Veterinary Technology in August 2014.  Her two favorite aspects of practice are assisting in surgery and being able to help pets who are sick or injured.  Emma is a very trusted member of our staff as she has quickly built her skill set by being willing to help and eager to learn.  Above all, she is compassionate and kind.  She has a soft spot for pit bulls and yorkies- and has one of each of her own!  She also has a couple of kitties, a sugar glider, rabbits and guinea pigs!


Jennifer:  Veterinary AssistantJennifer:  Veterinary Assistant

Jennifer has been in the veterinary profession for over a decade.  She is a true gem and a lovely key player of our staff, demonstrating compassion and sensitivity towards each pet and client.  She has a soft spot for hounds and shares her home with a hound dog, 4 cats and a rabbit.  She loves the opportunity to help those who cannot speak for themselves (woof, woof!), bringing comfort to those who need it, and is a sucker for puppy breath!  "Every appointment is different", she adds, smiling.

Taylar:  Veterinary AssistantTaylar:  Veterinary Assistant

Taylar is relatively new to the veterinary field, but you would never know it.  Her many years working at her family’s restaurants on Kelley’s Island no doubt helped prepare her for this new role, and she has transitioned beautifully!  Taylar is a life-long resident of North Ridgeville and loves spending time with her family.  She also shares her home with Vegas, a young Poodle/Mountain Cur mix, and she recently adopted 2 kittens- which brings her cat total to 6!  Taylar loves being active outside and enjoys playing both softball and volleyball.
