Jeanette was born in Alexandria, Virginia and raised in Dale City, Virginia. Her father’s work gave her the opportunity to live in several different states. After graduating from high school, she attended BYU in Utah, earning a degree in Veterinary Technology degree. Jeanette spent 3 years as a small animal veterinary technician, before coming to work for Herd Health. She has been with Herd Health Management for nearly 20 years and is the Lab Manager for the large animal diagnostic laboratory.
Jeanette has the responsibility for all in-house laboratory work, including milk culturing on individual and bulk tank samples to help identify appropriate antibiotic treatments and control contagious pathogen spread. Additionally, she conducts in house fecal exams, blood smear analysis and gram staining with bacteria identification on samples.
Jeanette is the mother of 6 adult children, and grandmother to one grandson whom she dotes on. And, let’s not forget her beloved pups, Castile and Calcifer, who can do no wrong.
