Jesse has a BS in Ecology and Evolution from UCSC, and decided to pursue a career with wildlife. She is originally from California, but moved to Minnesota to intern in our seasonal Mammal Nursery. After completing the internship, she decided to go back to school for an AAS in Veterinary Technology at Argosy University in the Twin Cities.
While completing her CVT degree, she was hired to manage our Waterfowl Nursery for three seasons. In 2017, Jesse was hired as a full-time CVT and now works with all our patients. Outside of WRC, Jesse enjoys reading, art and crafts, and playing with her dog Brodie.
