Hi I'm Jennifer

I grew up in California and have lived there all my life. I work as a registered veterinary technician and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I knew growing up I always wanted to work with animals, so when the opportunity came in high school I took it. I went through a program that helped to place me at a work site where I could volunteer and gain experience in that particular area. My first job was doing kennel work at a veterinary hospital, which later turned into on site training to be a vet tech assistant. I then went to school and passed the state board to become a registered veterinary technician. I then went to a university to get a BS in animal science. Aside from lots of school and work I do play soccer when I get the chance. It is something I have been doing since I was five years old and still continue to do. It is not uncommon to find me on two or three different amateur leagues at once. I am also a big fan of the Legend of Zelda video game series and maybe a bit of anime here and there. (Nerd!)

Why I am a Mormon

When I look back on my life I find that I would not have accomplished everything I have without the gospel in my life. There is so much goodness and joy in living the gospel that cannot compare to what the world may offer. It is so easy to get distracted from what is happening today and I am grateful for the light and knowledge that I have learned by living the gospel. I will continue to live it because I have found so much more happiness in it than without it.

How I live my faith

I grew up in the church, so I was just kind of going through the motions and not really thinking much of it. It wasn't until I was a young adult that I really thought about how I felt about the church. It was also about that time that I was called to be a teacher for the ladies of my ward. I thought to myself, "How can I teach when I'm trying to figure it out myself?" But I tried anyway and there were many prayers involved to help me teach the ladies what they needed to hear that day. As time went on I found that after every lesson I learned so much just from the participation and comments from my fellow women during those lessons and many of my own questions were answered. We all had experiences that we could relate to the lesson and therefore helped to strengthen one another.
