Dr. Jessica Brooks grew up in Midland, Michigan, and graduated from Michigan State University College of Veterinary Medicine in 2007. She practiced at a big clinic in Santa Fe before moving to Durango in 2010. Dr. Brooks loves the variety in veterinary medicine, where she can see everything from a healthy kitten or puppy, to performing a complex surgery, to dentistry, to hospice care, all in the same day. She also loves the long term relationships formed with clients and their furry family members. She is a member of the AAFP (American Association of Feline Practitioners) and heads Riverview's Feline Task Force. At home, she loves being a mom and spending time with her family in the mountains. She has three cats (Jinx, Charm, and Spell), and one adorable dog (Bristow).
