Jessie Hourigan

Veterinary Technician

Jessie was recruited onto our team from Tallahassee, Florida as lead technician. She performs radiographs, bloodwork, and therapies for many of our patients at Walking Paws Rehab. Jessie is kind, hard working, fast learning, and such a joy to be alongside. We are certain you will feel the same way too when meeting her.

Jessie grew up riding horses competitively and has always loved the outdoors, especially going to the Florida beaches. Like many of us she discovered her love for animals through raising pets such as dogs, cats, and guinea pigs.

She began her career in the veterinary world in 2019 at a general practice, where she quickly worked up to becoming a veterinary technician. Jessie trained under Fear Free certified veterinarians. This allowed her to learn stress free handling and practices to help make patient’s vet experiences as anxiety free as possible. While working as a veterinary technician, she was able to experience all aspects of general practice and expand her passion in caring for animals, while being given the avenue to broaden her knowledge in veterinary medicine. Jessie wanted to continue expanding her experience, so she joined the Walking Paws team in 2022.

On Jessie’s days off she enjoys reading, watching UFC fights and exploring beautiful Colorado with her puppy, Franklin, and her boyfriend. Jessie can’t wait to meet all of you and your sweet animals! We are certain your pet will love her gentleness and soft approach.
