Jess grew up in Pagosa Springs with her 5 horses and riding as her passion in life. She fell in love with Durango after moving here for college and marrying her longtime boyfriend, Jeremy. That was 12 years ago. Jess now calls a 4 1/2 acre parcel of land home that she shares with her "kids," her horse (Sampson), miniature donkey (Cricket), lab mix (Lola), fiesty orange cat (Pumpkin), shy indoor cat (Abigail) and adorable indoor bunny whose favorite treat are almonds (Gulliver). Jess is still an avid horseback rider and enjoys hiking the trails with Lola. She's excited to be at Riverview and help other animal lovers get their pets the care they need and deserve.
