Jackie was born and raised in the pacific northwest! Growing up on a farm in Snohomish, Jackie was introduced early on the joys of being surrounded by animals. With a love of pets and persistence to join the veterinary community, it finally paid off in 2011 where Jackie joined her first clinic in West Seattle. After 3 years and gaining much experience, Jackie joined Elliott Bay in April 2015 as a Veterinary Assistant. Jackie spends her time fostering disabled animals with local rescue organizations, hiking, rollerblading, playing basketball, and cooking. Jackie currently has one dog, Butters, but a revolving door for special needs kitties who need a foster mama.
