Jacquie’s passion and love for cats played a big role in her decision to start her career at BRVC in 2007, she considers herself a “kitten aficionado.” She moved to San Ramon 4 years ago, and currently lives with her boyfriend and two adorable cats, Kevin and Doug. Her second passion is baseball. When she isn’t at work, you can find her at the Oakland A’s games. Her goal is to watch the A’s play at every MLB stadium!
Her history at BRVC…
Jacquie started as a Runner, gathering charts for upcoming appointments before BRVC made the switch to electronic charts. From there, she moved her way throughout the hospital filling roles such as Client Services Representative, Exam Room Technician, and Pharmacy Technician. In the last 8 years, Jacquie has been from reception to our treatment area, and everywhere in between. She has also been a great asset to our pharmacy department, she knows it all!
What her coworkers have to say…
“Jacquie is constantly in motion. She is always trying to improve the efficiency of the hallway, as well as making the client experience of refilling prescriptions easier. Brainstorming with Jacquie is fun and productive, she really runs with ideas and helps see them through the end. What I love about Jacquie is her ability to make everyone feel like a part of the team, and that she steals kittens for us to play with when we are having a stressful day!” – Traci L., Pharmacy Technician/Exam Room Technician
“I enjoy working with Jacquie because she is always bubbly and comes in with a smile on her face and a “can do” attitude. She will always find a way to make pharmacy a positive environment, even during the most stressful times. We often call Jacquie the “queen of pharmacy” because she knows the ins and outs, and everything in between. There is not a single question that Jacquie can’t answer. Having Jacquie on our team really makes us feel confident that we can succeed in whatever is thrown our way.” – Stephanie R., Pharmacy Technician/Exam Room Technician/CSR

In addition, Jacquie knows anything and everything that needs to be known in Pharmacy and ERT, she is a wealth of knowledge for the hallway. I know the Doctors and Staff always feel better knowing Jacquie is there to answer any difficult questions that may come up. She is a pro at training and has trained many successful employees. We can always feel confident that anyone who trains under Jacquie has been trained the proper BRVC way. She is a very important member of the BRVC family and we are lucky to have her!” –Olivia H., Treatment Coordinator

“Jacquie is incredibly knowledgeable; she is pretty much the doctor’s right hand. She always keeps things organized and makes work fun with her smile and sense of humor. She is also a huge cat lover like myself, which makes her A-okay in my book!”- Penny P., Exam Room Technician
What Jacquie loves about working at BRVC…
“I love being able to say that I am a part of one of the best veterinary hospitals in the Bay Area. Along with my coworkers and veterinarians, we are able to make a difference in the lives of our clients and their beloved animals with the variety of services we offer. I love the people I work with; seeing their compassion and care for our clients and patients makes me happy to work alongside them. But most of all, I enjoy working with kittens!”
