Jamie at North End Pet Hospital

Hospital Manager

Like any veterinary professional, Jamie adores working closely with animals. However, she feels that her true strength lies in making important connections with people—especially pet owners! As one of North End Pet Hospital’s receptionists, she gets to build relationships with pet parents and their beloved furry friends every single day.

Jamie joined the North End Pet Hospital family in 2013. She currently lives in Tacoma with her husband and their black Lab, Charlie, who loves eating things he shouldn’t and nipping the stuffing out of all of his toys. When she isn’t spending time with her family or tending to her duties here at the hospital, Jamie enjoys knitting and crocheting, reading, being outdoors, and traveling.

Client Service Representative

While she was back home in Michigan, Jaedyn began her career in the veterinary field as a kennel staffer and an assistant. Seeking a change in life, she moved across country to Tacoma and stumbled across North End Pet Hospital, fitting right in. Jaedyn feels that being able to work with animals everyday helps to curb her animal hoarding cravings, since she pretty much wants to bring home every critter that she sees. In addition to getting to work with animals everyday, forcing her love on the pets of the Tacoma area, Jaedyn loves her job at NEPH because "it is one of a kind" and she has found her family here.
