Jamie's Top 5 Animal Moments:
5. Being dragged through the mud by a Bactrian camel named Chelsea, who apparently could NOT wait to snack on the leaves of a nearby tree.
4. Snorkeling Haiti's coral reef; getting burned by fire coral.
3. Making adults scream as a Henry Vilas Zoo docent, by surprising them with the Madagascar Hissing Cockroaches (the children were much braver!)
2. Winning an all-too-brief staring contest with a coyote in my backyard.
1. Adopting my pit bull, Mike, in 2014. It was the best $80 I've ever spent, and his dad, Matt, and I will never be the same.
Other (perhaps more pertinent) information about Jamie:
Bachelor's degree in Psychology from UW-Stevens Point, 2004
Veterinary Technician Program graduate, MATC, 2012
Owns a stilt walking business (Go Jolly Giants!)
I'm a landlord! My brother and I own three rental properties together.
I dabble in photography, music, and mushroom hunting.
I live with Matt, my adorable partner of 8 years, in my family's homestead, which lied between two runways of Dane County Airport.
Although I am certainly Four Lakes Vet Clinic's most part-time employee, I couldn't love it there any more than I do. We are truly a caring, responsive, professional team. I gladly trust my coworkers with my own pets' lives.
We also laugh more than any group of people I have ever worked with.
