My parents tell a story about me when I was in elementary school, telling my teacher I would grow up to be a veterinarian. I have always loved animals (to my mother's displeasure when it came to snakes!). So, it should come as no surprise as I chose veterinary medicine as my career.
I have wanted to be a veterinarian for as long as I can remember. Even before I can remember, my Mom tells me that I wandered towards any dog I saw at the park. I was always sneaking lizards, baby birds, and the occasional stray kitten home, and trying to "save" them.
Dr. Jennifer Osborne is a Northern California native. She began her journey into veterinary medicine at the age of 15. She initially started by working as a kennel attendant in a veterinary practice, then moved up to a veterinary assistant prior to going to college.
I was born in Cerritos, California and was raised in the Los Angeles/Orange County area. I knew that I wanted to be a veterinarian since I was in the 8th grade. For my undergraduate career, I attended Cal Poly Pomona and received a Bachelor Degree in Animal Science.
