Veterinary Assistant / Receptionist
My name is Jennifer Martindale. I’m a Veterinary Assistant and I’ve worked at the Boulder Creek Vet for 8 years. My favorite part of the job is caring for hospitalized animals, placing IV catheters, running bloodwork, taking X-rays, and helping ease clients stress/worry when they have a sick pet. I chose this profession because as a young girl I’ve always been fascinated with the medical field and I combined that love with my love of animals. My hobbies when I’m not at work are hiking with my dogs Phoenix and Skylar and my son Jeremy. Searching for mushrooms in the winter and collecting gemstones.

Fall 2022 update-Millie has now gone off to college and you will see her intermittently when she is home on vacations.
My name is Amber and I am a Veterinary Assistant / Kennel Assistant. I have been here for about a year and a half. My favorite part of the job is working with the animals and the Team. Everyone has been super welcoming and patient with me while I learn the ropes (and pronunciations of medications haha.) To work in the Veterinary field had always felt like a far away childhood dream that was unrealistic to pursue. The pandemic gave me a unique opportunity to hit the reset button on my life after dedicating my whole adult life to business management. Now that I'm here I feel so happy and fulfilled, like what I'm doing really does make a difference. Even on the tough days I'm proud to be here.I love going on hikes, hopping into the river on a hot day, long walks on empty beaches in the middle of winter, and making art until my hands are stiff. I have 5 kitties who are just the center of my whole world. Especially my best friend Wiley, a crabby old flame point I've had since the precious age of eleven, who continues to teach me how to be a better person every day. See less
