Meet Our Staff
Dr. Jam (Jennifer Mathe)
In the cruel winter of January 1994, I was born in Wisconsin and left in 2012 for New York where I earned a bachelor’s degree with Honors for Conservation Biology and dual minors in Applied Statistics and Marine Science in 2015. I worked as a veterinary assistant for 1.5 years in Wisconsin at both a wildlife rehab and a primary care/reproduction veterinarian after graduation. I attended veterinary medical school at University of Wisconsin-Madison starting in 2017, graduating May 2021 with my Doctorate of Veterinary Medicine (DVM). In my clinical year, I studied at three exotics facilities (Brookfield Zoo, Milwaukee Zoo, and Center for Bird and Exotic Animal Medicine), three emergency rotations, and spent 2 months working with affordable vet care and high volume spay/ neuter surgery with shelters and low-income/homeless populations. I worked in primary care and emergency medicine at Lone Mountain Animal Hospital, caring for dogs, cats, rabbits, regular pigs, reptiles, birds, basically anything that could enter the door. I moved to shelter medicine and more high volume spay/neuter surgery at The Animal Foundation of Las Vegas. After departing, I started my relief veterinarian career, helping where needed and found a place in the Pahrump community because I saw the need for access to care and more veterinary services. So I jumped right in to start my own business to make the world a better place.
Veterinary and Kennel Assistant
My whole life I've loved animals, that has led me to have a large pack of my own including four dogs of different sizes and breeds, three loud, talkative kitties, a lady tortoise named Hagrid, and my favorites, three colorful tree frogs. I've been in the vet field for the past two years and I have been volunteering with animals since I was a young kid. Although I love my 24/7 animal life, I do enjoy spending quality time with my family and friends as much as possible. Working at an exotic vet clinic is perfect for me, seeing and interacting with a new species is one of my favorite things in life!
I have grown up with animals ranging from dogs to tree frogs but Orion, my soul mate cat, made me into a total cat lady. Orion and I have grown up together for 17 years, he’s a huge part of why I’m drawn to helping animals. I’m here to learn as much as I can about the animals and the veterinary practice. I have many ideas of what my future will be filled with but the majority of those ideas include animals, like how it’s always been a dream of mine to own an animal rescue. Animals are my life and they will be my future.
