She has worked with animals from a young age volunteering in shelters, helping with rescue organizations and working within veterinary hospitals. She is currently working towards completing her degree in nursing at Red River College. Although she is pursuing a career in human medicine, working with animals is a passion she will continue to follow in her life. Jessica has a particular interest in the emergency aspect Bridgwater has to offer to individuals and the triaging done within the hospital.
