Jen Obal

Veterinary Assistant

She graduated with a BA from Otterbein College, and after working in fields that had nothing to do with her degree, she finally decided to get serious about her love of animals and desire to care for them. Throughout her life, she has volunteered at animal shelters in her home state of Ohio, as well as with local Therapeutic Riding classes and clinics. Jen has worked in high volume spay and neuter facilities since 2011, and she has trained at the Humane Alliance in Asheville, NC. She loves working with cats and dogs, educating the community on the benefits of spay/neuter, and making a difference in families' relationships with their pets through her job. Jen has owned pets in every discernible shape and size, caring for mice, rats, hamsters, iguanas, chameleons, geckos, tropical fish, and African millipedes (not all at the same time)!
