  • Jen Stambaugh
    Office Manager, Receptionist, Veterinary Technician

    Jennifer Stambaugh is from Warsaw, Indiana where I worked many years in the veterinary field.  I learned a lot of aspects of the field by starting from the ground up as a kennel technician, then a receptionist, and a veterinary technician and now our office manager.

    I joined our team in November 2016. I moved here for the weather of course and the mountain views. I moved here with my wonderful husband (Billy) and my 3 dobermans. My daughter also decided to move here and joined our team as well.

    I am very grateful for the opportunity to work for such a great hospital and team.  Dr. Comp and Dr. Fred are very compassionate and knowledgeable veterinarians that I'm grateful to work with and have learned much from.

    I grew up on a farm with a variety of animals and knew from an early age that caring for animals was something I always wanted to do. I feel it's a privilege to be able to do this job.
