Doctor Jennifer Higgins joined the All West team about a month ago.

She has a special interest in Small animal surgery, exotic animal and wildlife medicine and surgery. Throughout veterinary school, Dr. Jennifer spent time at several zoos, aquariums, and wildlife hospitals. She researched brucellosis in goats, cattle, and yak for her PhD, and has traveled to Mongolia several times for her studies. Her family includes two dogs. Outside of work, she enjoys mountain biking, climbing, triathlon, and skiing often accompanied by her crazy border collie pup Storm. We hope you have a chance to meet Dr. Jennifer soon!
