Jessica has loved animals from a young age: even her first word was “cow”. After showing horses for many years, Jessica decided to graduate from Montana State University in 2019 with her bachelor’s degree in Animal Science, with a concentration in Equine Sciences. Her equine plans were somewhat put on hold when she was crowned Miss Montana 2020/2021 and reigned for two years during the COVID pandemic. Back in the saddle, as it were, she has returned to her love of animals to work as a Veterinary Assistant here at Highlands. When she isn’t loving on patients at the clinic, Jessica can be found riding horses, hiking with her dog, skiing, or practicing martial arts.
