Professional Summary

Please note I am transgender, female to male. My legal name is Molly Claire, but I prefer to be called Jessica and am looking into having it legally changed.

I have received my veterinary assistant certification through Central Michigan University after a life long commitment of working with animals.

In the past, I have shadowed at three veterinary offices, interned at one, ran my own pet care business, worked for a dog day care, and have volunteered at animal shelters, all while caring for my own pets as well.

I've worked with dogs, cats, rabbits, birds, chinchillas, hermit crabs, and many other exotics which has helped me learn a wide variety of care methods.

I attended a tech school in high school called Oakland Technical Campus, South East, where I was enrolled in the Biotechnology and Environmental Science course and specialized in animal science. Here, I joined the Future Farmers of America and went to several competitions, one where I came in second in the state level competition.

At OTC, I was also enrolled in an online course through VetMedTeam where I learned the basic skills of a veterinary technician and passed every section in the course. I still use the site for continued education to keep myself up to date on skills I need.
