Jamie Rector, LVT
Jamie migrated from a small town on the opposite side of the state. She attended Penn State University, and shortly after, welcomed an AMAZING (now almost 17 year old, GULP…) daughter. After almost 10 years working with children diagnosed with Autism, she switched career paths and found herself submersed in the world of Veterinary Medicine. She came to VCA with extensive experience in Specialty and Emergency Medicine, both as a nurse and in a Supervisory role. After spending a year as the Assistant Hospital Manager with the wonderful staff at VCA Old Marple, she accepted the position as Hospital Manager here at East Penn! Jamie’s future goals include obtaining her certification as a CVPM (Certified Veterinary Practice Manager. If she cannot be found at a softball or field hockey game cheering her daughter on, she enjoys traveling with her favorite guy, or taking a long run and a wicked barre class. Her four legged family is essential to her ‘sanity’ and includes 2 cats, Callie and Penn; 2 chinchillas, Mooshu and Kismet; a crested gecko, Figment; and 2 AMAZING dogs, Tori, a Border Collie Mix, and the newest member of the chaos, Kyrie, an Australian Shepherd puppy. It is organized chaos at it’s best, but she wouldn’t have it any other way!
Why I do what I do: My animals have always been my rock. There is nothing happier then a wagging tail or as soothing as a calming purr. The transition to Veterinary Medicine was a natural one for me. I can think of no better way to witness the power of the bond between human and animal. In our field, we are able to see this connection every day and ensure the strength of that bond is there for as long as possible. To me, there is nothing more rewarding than that. Our ability to step in and provide our patients with high level medicine and build confidence in our clients that we are here to provide the utmost care to their pet is what feeds my soul.
