Jesse Newman - Veterinary Technician
Jesse has been working in the veterinary field since 1998, and builds on it with continued education. She has been around veterinary clinics since she was born, observing and working in her father’s veterinary hospital in Langhorne, Pennsylvania. Growing up with a vet for a dad, and being around animals her whole life, it came as a natural choice to make caring for animals a career.
Outside of work, Jesse also enjoys spending time on the family farm with family dogs, cats Hotdog, Helli and Sprinkler. During the warmer months she loves riding her Appaloosa horses, Gigi and Floyd. As well as participating in Adventure races and mountain biking.
Unfortunately August 15th, 2020, Jesse lost her best friend and loyal companion Hammi, due to unforeseen circumstances. He will be greatly missed as he was part of the family here at Brealey Drive Animal Clinic.
