A few words with our EOM
Jillian Travisano, Veterinary Technician Supervisor
When did you join NorthStar VETS?
"I started in April of 2011 when we were still in the Clarksburg location."
What attracted you to veterinary medicine?
"I have BS in Wildlife Care and Education. After college, I was looking for a wildlife job but couldn’t find one that paid the bills, so I got a position as a kennel tech at Toms River Animal Hospital and really enjoyed the work. And here I am twelve years later!"
What do you love about what you do?
"Currently as a Supervisor, I really enjoy the problem-solving aspect of it. But my ultimate happy place is nursing care and being in the wards helping patients be comfortable, whether going home to their owners or end-of-life care."
Tell us about your own pets
"The Travisano household has had a sad past three years. We’ve lost five pets, but I had the best nurses and doctors helping us at NorthStar VETS. The ones who remain are my cats, Grey and Robin. Grey is a run-of-the-mill domestic shorthair and Robin is a CH cat who is my snuggle bug boy."
What would people be surprised to know about you?
"Something people would be surprised to know about me is that I went to school in Maine, but went abroad for a semester in Italy and was there for 6 months in a small town called Ascoli Piceno."
