Janessa has been with Coronado Veterinary Hospital since January of 2018, but has been working in the veterinary community since 2014. Coronado has quickly become her second family. She received a Bachelors of Science degree in Communication Disorders at New Mexico State University in 2010 and worked with special needs children in the Phoenix, AZ school district for 4 years as a Speech and Language Pathologist Assistant prior to switching careers. That time in her life was enjoyable and meaningful and taught her a lot about life and people. She is the oldest of 5 girls and grew up on a small ranch in New Mexico where her parents raised Blue Heeler’s, horses, cows, and her sisters raised pigs through the 4-H program. Family is very important to her and she enjoys spending as much time as she can with her own. Her favorite getaway place is anywhere where there are mountains. In her spare time Janessa enjoys photography, fashion, and drinking lots of coffee.
