Jamie was born and raised in New Jersey, and lived there for nineteen years before moving to Colorado for a nice change. Having always loved animals, Jamie knew that she wanted a career working with them, so she attended Pima Medical Institute in Colorado Springs, where she received her Veterinary Assistant degree and then her Veterinary Technician degree. She is married to an amazing guy Brendan, and they currently have two dogs and two cats.

Heather grew up in a family that took care of every kind of animal imaginable - her earliest memories include helping nurse injured skunks, hawks and owls, and raising orphaned raccoons, rabbits, etc. She traveled to Colorado Springs during summer vacations to visit her grandmother's goat farm and eventually lived there for many years. Heather found a veterinary technician school that furthered her knowledge of animals and began work at Pikes Peak Veterinary Clinic but then took several years off to stay at home with her daughter. Now she lives in Black Forest with her husband, daughter and a small assortment of animals. She's very happy to be back at PPVC and to see all of the old and new clients with their pets!
Tonya recently completed her Certificate in Veterinary Assisting from Pima Medical Institute...bio pending!
