Alexandria Pet Grooming & Boarding
Kennel SupervisorJennifer D
Jennifer is the Boarding Coordinator at VCA Old Town and she truly believes that your pets need their vacation too - so she does all she can to help them relax and enjoy themselves when they stay with us. Jennifer is a bundle of energy, whizzing around doing everything for everyone, even helping at the Front Desk! But at the same time she will crawl in a cage and take all the time needed to help a pet relax and become familiar and comfortable with surroundings. She gives the best baths - talking and playing with the water, giving comfort and care your pet just as if it is her own pet.
At home, she is "just Mom" but spends her time running kids from place to place and caring for the family menagerie, including Zeus and Caesar, the two dogs. She is a big Redskins fan and enjoys anything out of doors! Just ask for her when you call with any questions about boarding.

Kriza's passion is animals and she is continuing her studies to obtain her DVM and PhD. She has a profound interest in technology and computers as well. The thing she loves most about her job is making a difference each day, with every client and patient that she works with.
