Jennifer Thomas started her career in animal care in 2005 as a volunteer for a local humane society. Initially, she majored in Criminal Justice, then decided to mix her passion for animals with law enforcement, becoming an animal control officer. Jennifer completed the State of California Humane Academy, where she learned local and state laws pertaining to domestic and wild animals. Jennifer had the opportunity to observe, rescue, and foster both domestic animals and urban wildlife that were either injured, sick, or orphaned. During her time as an animal control officer, Jennifer discovered that she preferred to help in the healing of the animals she rescued and decided to pursue a career in veterinary medicine. Currently, she is taking courses towards obtaining her RVT license.
While not working or in school, she is often found at her community YMCA where she joins her husband and son who coach and play for the youth basketball teams. She also enjoys arts and crafts with her daughter and spending personal development and devotional time at her church.
