Veterinary Assistant, Customer Care Specialist Lead
After graduating from the Veterinarian Assistant program at Maritime Business College, Jessica started her career at Full Circle in 2015 and is currently the front desk lead. Jessica enjoys interacting with the public and providing clients with upbeat, quality customer service. She also enjoys treating the patients to a good bum scratch and some dehydrated beef liver.
Jessica appreciates working at an integrative holistic veterinary practice and enjoys educating clients about our services such as a reduced vaccine protocol and titer testing both of which she has opted for her dogs.
"I wanted to work in the veterinary field not only because of my love for animals but because I wanted a career where I felt I was helpful to the general public and there is no better way than to help a pet who cannot help themselves.”
In her spare time, she can be found outside enjoying the various trails and parks around Nova Scotia with her boyfriend and their two rescued dogs Princess Leia and Princess Peach. She is a huge supporter of anti-BSL (Breed Specific Legislation), and you’ll find her marching with the Halifax Bully Breed group in protest. She also has two indoor cats at home named Ceaser and Ace.
With recent changes to restrictions on businesses, we can continue providing our full range of services, under certain restrictions. As our province enters the next phase of the reopening plan, we have some updates to share with you about our safety measures.
We are continuing to see all cases by appointment only including Canine Rehabilitation Services, Animal Chiropractic, TCVM Consultations, Bloodwork for Referral Services, Wellness Exams, Vaccines and more!
Beginning June 29, 2020, clients are able to come into the hospital with their pets with the following restrictions:
SAFETY MEASURES TO KEEP EVERYONE SAFE
Continue our "closed waiting room" policy to protect our clients and staff. When you arrive, please remain outside the hospital and use your cell phone to call us.
Face coverings must be worn to enter the hospital.
Use hand washing station upon entry.
Washrooms will be closed to the public until further notice.
If you wish to remain in your car during the appointment, when you call to inform us of your arrival, we will take a history of your pet's health and discuss any concerns. A staff member will then meet you outside to bring your pet into the hospital for an examination. The Veterinarian will call you to discuss the recommended treatment plan. After your appointment, a staff member will return your pet to you outside, and take care of any needed medications and payment.
Continue the use of credit cards as the preferred payment method.
Continue with curbside pickup of food and medication (unless you have used our online store and are having your order delivered directly to your home). To place an order through our online store, visit our website and click on "Online Store".
ONLINE CONSULTATIONS ARE AVAILABLE
If you wish to connect with a veterinarian via message, phone or video, visit our website and follow the "Online Consultation" link.
We are OPEN with the following hours:
- Monday to Friday: 10:00 am - 6:00 pm - Saturday & Sunday: CLOSED
Thank you for your patience and understanding and we look forward to seeing you and your furry family members again!
