We are so excited to have Jensen on board the Honeoye Falls tech team! Jensen came to us after completing her schooling at Alfred State College. There she not only excelled in her veterinary technician program, but she also rode for the Alfred State Equestrian Team. Jensen adores her horse, Tulsa, who she acquired in a skinny, neglected and fragile state. After spending countless hours with him, she gained his trust and helped him to become the healthy, strong and confident horse he is today!
Besides Tulsa, Jensen also has Gunner (a Redbone Coonhound) and Calvin (a Dachshund mix- pictured above). In her spare time she loves to get outside for some hiking, fishing, horse back riding and letting Gunner follow his nose in the woods.
Jensen has a true passion for working with animals, especially the patients that come into our hospital. She is always eager to learn more in order to provide the best care possible, which we greatly admire about her. Her bright personality and positive attitude shines through in her work! When asked what her favorite part of her job is, she says, “Besides getting my puppy and kitten fix, I love getting to know our patients and their owners more than anything. Watching an owner so happy and excited to reunite with their pet after having a big scare or surgery is the most amazing feeling. Makes everything worth it!” She also says, “Working at Honeoye Falls Veterinary Hospital is great because I see that my coworkers truly care about their patients and are so enjoyable to work with. Each person brings something to the table, and it makes for a great veterinary team as a whole.”
Please say hi to Jensen next time you are in the office. You’re sure to get a big smile back!
