Jean has been with the Animal Hospital since it opened it’s doors in 1975, and is our highly trusted practice manager. Trained as a nurse, Jean worked at Holy Cross Hospital for five years before moving to the veterinary side of medicine. Her life for the past 40 years has been dedicated to the health and well-being of our furry four-legged friends, and many, many waifs and strays (of both human and animal nature). Jean is one of the most genuine, hard-working and caring ‘old-school’ people you could have the privilege to know. A former Yorkie breeder and once-upon-a-time member of the dog show circuit, she possesses an incredible base of knowledge concerning all things related to dogs and dog breeding.
When they say that no-one is indispensable, they were not talking about Jean Oxenfort. She is the backbone of our practice, cares deeply for staff and clientele and can turn her hand and time-honed wisdom to just about anything. We absolutely forbid poor Jean to ever retire.
