Her passion for animals quickly grew and her skills became more polished as she pursued becoming a Technician. In 2011, she joined the team at VCA OSO Creek Animal Hospital. Taking advantage of the variety of specialty services offered, she has become well versed in emergency care, surgeries, and care of critical patients in the hospital. She loves each patient as if it was her own and empathizes with each family in their joy and sorrow. Jaimie also has a calling for organization and inventory.
