"Growing up, I've had pets as long as I can remember-though they were a bit untraditional (white ducks and mallards). From there I have had rabbits, birds fish, a turtle , dogs, and cats as memebers of my family. I enjoy working with animals and like being a part of ensuring others' family members are healthy. I find it rewarding to interact with owners and their pets."

Jai joined our team in November of 2012 and comes to us with previous experience as an animal control officer for Wicomico County. She also worked as the administrative assistant and animal care manager at the Humane Society of Wicomico County. Jai currently has 3 pets, Otto an 11year old Pitbull, Ellie a 1 year old Chihuahua, and Ramses a 4 year old cat.
"It's especially important to me that my boys understand the responsibility we have to care for our pets. Having animals allows me to show them daily that pets are more than things we own. As the 'furry' memebers of our family we strive to make educated decisions regarding their health. Quality nutrition, routine preventive care, dentistry, elective surgeries, and chronic diseases are just a few of the topics that having and working with animals allow me to discuss with my family almost daily. It is through these discussions that I hope to inspire my children to do more than 'like' animals but to advacate for them."

"When I was a little girl I lived on a farm so we were always getting stray animals.
I would always take them in and feed them and give them a lot of love.
The sick ones I would do my best to nurse back to health. I eventually got the
Nickname Ellie Clampett. My passion for animals eventually led me to become a
Veterinary Technician. Which I Have found to be very rewarding."
