Growing up in West Allis with her family, Jennie Gross was always around pets. She remembers loving tagging along with her parents to the vet’s office. She was even put in charge of the class turtle in 6th grade!
Jennie’s veterinary career started when she worked at a pet store. When she learned of the Veterinary Technician program at Madison Area Technical College, she knew it would be right up her alley. She graduated in May of 2001 and passed her state board exam in June of 2001. She has been caring for pets as a Veterinary Technician at Brook-Falls since it opened in 2007. In addition to her medical duties, Jennie is responsible for ordering medications and supplies for the clinic.
Client education is one of Jennie’s favorite parts of her job—she loves to spread the knowledge that she learned in school and through continuing education. She also enjoys doing lab work and radiology.
Jennie has been married to her husband Dave since August 2000. They have two daughters, Alexis and Nadia. The family lives on a 7 acre hobby farm with their two cats (Jack & Chester), 2 dogs (Rufus and “One-Eyed” Willie), a goat (Jerry) and a Guinea Pig. Jennie currently spends a good deal of her free time going on trips and playing sand volleyball with her family and friends. Their team took first place in their division this summer!
