Jennifer is our hospital Practice Manager and Veterinary Technician. She has been working with Dr. Rickords since 2006, before the practice opened. First working with him in Arlington, then filling in a few days a week in the early years of Rickords Animal Hospital. She has been with us full time now since July 2012. She genuinely cares about each and every staff member, client, and patient we have.

She has a wealth of knowledge and is ready to educate you on almost anything you can throw her way. She shares her home in north Fort Worth with her husband Justin, her maltese "Sugar", special needs pomeranian "Carli", and cat Gretel.
