Jessie has been working for Dr. Houston since March of 2014, and feels extremely blessed for the opportunity to work with such an amazing team of people. She also enjoys meeting a wide variety of animals with personalities as unique as the clients who bring them in, as well as learning fascinating information, from the life cycle of fleas, to the importance of boosting vaccines, and much more.

At home Jessie has two cats, Angelo and Josie, and a Jack Russell Terrier, named Jack. In her spare time she enjoys performing in community theater programs, reading, and exploring vintage and second hand stores and oddity shops.

 

Stacy Fitz Gerald, CVTstacy

I have been truly blessed in this life. I have a job that I love, a family I adore and amazing friends (both furry and otherwise). I started my career in veterinary medicine eight years ago working with Dr. Houston in Gresham. I became a Certified Veterinary Technician four years ago. I am so excited to once again be working with Dr. Houston and to be working with such an incredible team in the same place that I call home. I have lived in Damascus for five years with my wonderful husband Todd. Together we have started a beautiful family that consists of our 2-year-old son Parker and our newborn daughter Charleigh. Our 4-footed family completes the picture and is made up of our fearless Boston Terrier, Porter, and his security team, German Shepherd siblings Leo & Juno.

She finished her sophomore year at Sam Barlow High School then went off to an early college entry program for her junior year at Mount Hood Community College to study Elementary Special Needs Education.

John Davis, ReceptionistJohn Davis - The Village Vet

I’m John Davis and I live by the motto, “Live Life.” I work at the Village Vet Clinic with an amazing team. I am constantly impressed by our daily interactions with clients and patients. After, four years in the service (USN), I am proud to say that working with the team at Village Vet and Barlow Trail Vet there is a genuine bond. This is a new field for me but I enjoy every moment of it — the animals, the owners, the teams, everything.

I am a proud father of two beautiful Daughters, a light-brown Dachshund (Lady), a salt-n-pepper Boston Terrier (Jasper), and a blue-n-red Beta fish (Jenkins), two African Dwarf Frogs (Froggy and Jake). All seven of them constantly keep me on my toes. I am currently finishing my BA in Literature Arts from Oregon State University (O! S! U!).

Shan HillGrizzly-Bear

I may be the most blessed person ever. Take my job: I get to work with the most amazing team of caring pet professionals I have ever had the privilege of knowing. I get to work for the extraordinary Dr. Houston. I get to manage the business end of things, which is work I enjoy enough to do for free (please don’t tell Dr. Houston that). And every day is different, but full of puppies and cats and dogs and kittens and even the occasional turtle or hamster or something. I live in the beautiful state of Oregon. I have two of the best sons a father could ask for. Right next to my computer, the picture of the most lovely bride. What more could a man ask for?
