Janine graduated from Medaille with an associate’s degree in 2011. She worked for a brief period of time as a veterinary assistant prior to becoming licensed as a veterinary technician later that year. Starting in October of 2013 she was hired at City Creatures Animal Hospital as a licensed veterinary technician. She has always had a great interest in and love of animals, having multiple pets growing up from hamsters, cats, a bird and an Irish setter. She also has an avid passion for horses and started riding from the age of 10. As a technician she strives to excel in the areas of critical nursing, emergency medicine, surgeries and client education. She currently lives in her apartment with her two cats Mirage, who was adopted as a kitten through Ten Lives Club, and Jerry Lee, whom she got from a private adoption due severe injury to his hind leg, and Gilbert the leopard gecko. Jerry (pictured) enjoys going for adventures on a leash, as he used to be an outdoor cat in the country.
