Just Cats Veterinary Services - Jen - Practice Manager

Jen, B.S.

Jen has worked various jobs in the veterinary industry since 1998. She graduated from Suffolk County Community College in New York with an A.A.S. in Veterinary Technology in 2004 and obtained her LVT status in NY in early 2005.  Jen then furthered her education and graduated from Cornell University with a B.S in Animal Sciences in 2006.  She moved to Texas in 2009 and joined the Just Cats team as a technician. Later, she was in the first grouping of technicians to receive LVT status in Texas in 2014. In 2018, she accepted the position of Practice Manager. (This is now her circus and we are now her monkeys.)  Jen has lived with an assortment of critters including cats (obviously), dogs, geckos, snakes, a hedgehog, mice, a rat, spiders, newts, and even a crawfish.  In her off time Jen enjoys cooking and eating food, traveling, crafting, sleeping, watching movies from the comfort of her own couch, macro photography, and joking around with friends.

What do people think is weird about? People often think that it is weird that I use to shovel snow in a t-shirt, I drink hot chocolate in the summer, I have obsessive cleaning tendencies, and I really haven't listened to new music since 2004. 

What game or movie universe would you most like to live in? Shrek!

How old were you when you got your first cat? I was born into cat ownership. My Mom's cat K.J. adopted me as soon as I came home from the hospital, and we were pretty inseparable ever since. K.J. and Baby B., her litter mate, were my first cats and the reason I pursued a career in the veterinary field. 


Just Cats Veterinary Services - Kinsey - CVA, B.S.

Kinsey, CVA, B.S.

After graduating in 2012 from the University of Houston with a Bachelor of Science Degree in Anthropology, Kinsey discovered her true passion was working with animals. She started with Just Cats in 2014 and obtained her CVA in 2015.  Kinsey is currently enrolled in an AVMA accredited online program to become a Licensed Veterinary Technician.  She is our only Fear Free Certified assistant and finds joy in educating clients and colleagues in feline friendly handling, promoting less stressful vet visits, and advocating for every kitty she meets.  Kinsey has 3 cats at home, all named after DC comic characters: Batman, Joker, and Harley Quinn (aka Baby Spice).  She is also known for having an extensive collection of giraffe related items to which many of her co-workers like to contribute.

What would be your first question after waking up from being cryogenically frozen for 100 years? When can I get a cheeseburger?

What are some small things that make your day better? Snuggling kitties, seeing my favorite clients and kitties, food gifts from coworkers, giraffes

If you suddenly became a master at woodworking, what would you make? Catio (#lifegoals), cat trees, shelves for my tiny treasures


Just Cats Veterinary Services - Sarah - LVT

Sarah, LVT

Sarah began her career in veterinary medicine in 2013 when she enrolled in the Veterinary Technology Program at Lone Star College in Tomball.  She came to Just Cats as a part of her clinical rotation in the Fall of 2016 and never left!  She fell in love with the practice, the employees, and every aspect of feline medicine, especially feline dental health and nutrition. Sarah obtained her LVT in 2017 and as one of our surgery technicians, loves to see the improvement of the overall health and happiness of her dental patients after every procedure.  She has 5 kids total! Two human children, 2 cats (Morris and Phoenix), and a rambunctious Border Collie Mix named Bonnie.

Which is better - Marvel or DC? Marvel all the way! (Okay DC a little bit - like 10%)

What is your favorite season? Fall! I love the gradual change from the hot summer months. It means more outdoor activities with the kids and Bonnie. We love to do things like camping, fishing, and our favorite - geocaching!

What would you do to entertain yourself if you were stuck in solitary confinement for 6 months? Read, read, and read some more. I would probably end up talking to myself and acting out plays based on what I was reading. Shh! Don't tell anyone. 


Just Cats Veterinary Services - Tam - CSR

Tam

Tam joined Just Cats in 2017 as Practice Manager after a 25 year career in Brain Injury Rehabilitation with humans.  She chose Just Cats because as a lifetime lover of cats she felt that it would be a great place for her to put her Hospital Administration skills to work.  She thoroughly enjoyed coming to work every day in that role, but human medicine called her back after a year.  She couldn’t imagine life without Just Cats so she landed the "purrfect" part time weekend gig, working every Saturday and Sunday (and loving every minute of it) as a Customer Service Representative. 

What could you give a 40 minute presentation on with absolutely no preparation? Customer Service—I have given many talks through the years at various conferences on Customer Service in human medicine which is also known as “The Patient Experience”.  My favorite quote about customer service is “The Customer is not always right, but they are always our Customer!” 

What bends your mind every time you think about it? Early on at Just Cats I learned a fascinating fact—animals who undergo treatment cannot encounter the “Placebo Effect”.  Unlike humans, they place no value, good or bad, on the treatment, so when a treatment works, it is because it really works. 

What is the most heartwarming thing you've ever seen? When I worked in brain injury rehab, I was introducing our new facility dog, Lucky, to one of our patients.  He was a young man who was in a car accident and had to have one of his legs amputated and had not been able to speak since the accident because of his brain injury.  Lucky had to have a leg amputated after being hit by a car.  Upon meeting Lucky, our patient exclaimed, “He…I…leg!!”  with a big smile on his face.  It was obvious to us all that he was thrilled to see that Lucky didn’t let his injury get him down.  There wasn’t a dry eye in the place! 


Just Cats Veterinary Services - Jennifer - LVT

Jennifer, LVT

Jennifer always knew she wanted to work with animals.  She was encouraged after high school to go into Veterinary Technology.  She attended the program at Lone Star College in Tomball and graduated in 2004.  She began working at Just Cats after her first year of Vet Tech school and instantly fell in love with working with cats.  Her favorite part of her job (besides cuddling with kitties all day) is dentistry.  She even took continuing education courses to further her knowledge of veterinary dentistry.  In her spare time, she enjoys traveling.  She has traveled to many places in the U.S. and has even been to England, Poland and Ireland.   Her new interest is photography.  When relaxing at home she is ruled by her very talkative cat Parker.

What is the farthest you’ve been from home?  London, England.  It’s was an amazing trip. I’d love to go back one day.

If you were an animal, what would you be?  A cat! I’d love to sleep all day and have a human feed and pet me all day.

Which is better Marvel or DC?  Marvel! I love Captain America and Iron Man
