  • Jessica Dawson (Jessie)

    Jessie is often the first person you talk to when calling and also one of the smiling faces you see when you walk in the front doors.  She has been with TLVC for almost 7 years and is an integral part of the team. Her duties vary from helping in surgery, to office managerial tasks, to client relations, and being an overall wonderful asset to the company. She is considered to be Doc's right hand woman. Her passions include not only the animals but boating and being in the woods on her quad.

    Her children include: Rosco (Chocolate Lab), Gauge (weimaraner mix), Harry the cat, Mufasa ("Moo" the long haired cat),  Annie (hound mix), Monkey (tabby cat), Seth (tabby and white cat), Scouty (chocolate lab), and Momma Kitty (gray tabby cat)
