Jamie is one of our veterinary assistants. She started here at Signal Mountain Veterinary Clinic in December 2022 but worked at Banfield Pet Hospital for a year before coming to us. When asked how she likes to start her day, she said “with the largest cup of coffee I can find,” (though she can often be found wrapped in a blanket, eating sour candy, and prepping for the day’s appointments after she completes her opening tasks). We once had to ban her from eating sour candies in the clinic due to breaking a tooth on a lemon drop! Outside of work, she enjoys reading, hiking, eating lasagna, watching Gilmore Girls, and spending time with her two dogs, Pip and Tyson. Her favorite part of veterinary medicine is watching puppies and kittens grow over their visits, so much so that she is considering attending school to become a licensed veterinary medical technician.
