I am originally from Joplin, MO and therefore I consider Southwest Missouri my home.  I am married and I enjoy canoeing and hiking although I never seem to have the time.  I started James River Animal Hospital in the summer of 1985.  We were the first practice in the region with a true interest in caring for birds as well as dogs and cats and soon expanded to other exotics.  I greatly enjoy caring for pets and value developing bonds with them.

I was raised on a working farm in Southwest Missouri.  My earliest memories are of interacting with cows, horses, and puppies (a present from an Uncle).  I enjoy bike riding and knitting in my free time.  Over the last 15 years, while working at James River Animal Hospital, I have bee privileged to care for a vast variety of species.  I believe prevention is the key to a healthy animal.

I am married and have 3 dogs, a cat and a cockatiel.  My love for animals motivated me to get my Veterinarian Assistant certificate, therefore giving me knowledge in most aspects of a veterinary hospital.  In my spare time I enjoy spending time with my 4 grand-blessings, reading and watching crime TV shows.  I look forward to meeting you and your pet!

I grew up in Strafford, MO, a small town outside of Springfield.  I am currently going to school to become a Veterinary Technician, which has always been my dream job.  My boyfriend and I have 2 dogs named Odie & Brutus, along with a numerous amount of reptiles, snakes and arachnids.  I'm always with my pups in my free time, whether they are playing, adventuring or napping, that's where I am too.  Animals of all kinds are my passion and I can't wait to help take care of yours!

Hello, my name is Jonova.  I’ve always had a passion for animals and the arts....which has driven me to get a degree in both fields (biology and art).  I’ve been in the animal field for more than a dozen years.  I enjoy making art, acting, exploring nature, and spending quality time with my family (especially my grandmother).  I am married, I have 4 wonderful kids, and a pack of dogs (lol, don't judge).  I am pleased to be your pets beauty consultant and a part of James River's team.
