Jenny has been along Dr. O’Hara’s side since she was 17 years old. They have traveled all over while he was going through schooling and working his first jobs as an associate veterinarian. She has always worked. Her main job experiences have been in the customer service industries. She worked as a licensed esthetician in the beauty industry/medi-spas for about 10 years. She also worked as support staff in the mental health field while they lived in Oregon and worked in the corporate world for an HR company at the end of their time in Texas.
Now as Abingdon Animal Medical Center’s manager, Jenny handles everything from staffing, customer service (when she is able to be in the office), clinic protocols, and most of her time is spent on the bookkeeping/accounting. She rarely has free time, but when she does, she loves spending time with her three beautiful children and of course her husband Doc! Her family includes Dr. O’Hara, Finn, Maeve, Eire, their dog Davy and the clinic cat Tri-Cos.
“I feel so blessed to be here in Abingdon, VA raising our family and being a part of this wonderful community. We are so grateful to be able to call Abingdon our hometown and to run Abingdon Animal Medical Center together. It is truly a pleasure to do what we do.”
Kristyn has always had a special place in her heart for animals. Growing up, she has always had pets, from cats and dogs, to a rabbit, fish, and even a bird when she was a child. Now Kristyn, her husband, and their little girl have 4 dogs and 2 cats. “Pets are WONDERFUL additions to a family! Although the loss of a pet is like losing a member of the family, there are many, many cats and dogs out there that need families and love. I feel it is important to find a new family member when the time is right.”-Kristyn
