Dr. Jessica Dubin
I grew up in Kansas where a Collie was a chief part of our family, among what other animals mom would bring in, comparing our home to Noah’s Ark. After majoring in education and fine arts at Wichita State, I continued to study business administration in Arizona, where my husband of over 30 years and I raised our 4 children. I was a 4-H leader for over 5 years as our family had the pleasure of participating in 4-H, training our golden retrievers and studying “back yard bunnies” as well as sharing our home with turtles, cockatiels, a collie and two cats.
After moving back to Kansas to be near family, I agreed to help out “for a few weeks” to assist with the transition of the then “new “computer system in 2003, thus became my career in the animal field. I enjoy getting to know the pets of Quivira Road Animal Clinic and their people. In addition, three of my children have also shared their compassion for animals while working at the clinic. Today, not only am I a proud grandma to a grandson and granddaughter, I also have grand dogs. Our furry family in residence is Dexter, a tuxedo kitty, whose predecessor (Toby) was with us 21 years! Dexter, like those before him, is there by my side as I quilt, sew and scrapbook. Not only do we share our home, but also our hobbies and hearts.
I have worked at Quivira Road Animal Clinic since getting my vet tech degree and license in 1993. A late bloomer, when I first heard about this profession at the age of 32, I knew it was perfect for me. I love my work and all the patients I have worked with, from dogs and cats, to monkeys and iguanas. I can’t imagine doing anything else. And- so there is no confusion- I’m a 1978 KU alumnus. Rock Chalk, JAYHAWKS!.
I graduated from Kansas State University in 2012 with a bachelor’s degree in Wildlife Biology, conservation and biodiversity. I have completed an internship at Operation Wildlife (where I still volunteer), two seasonal positions with KDWPT and volunteer in a Masters Naturalist Program. I started working at Quivira Road Animal Clinic when I was 16 as kennel help and have worked my way to becoming a vet assistant and groomer. I have dedicated my life to the care of wildlife and domestic animals.
I love being able to help people and animals. There is never a dull moment here and one day is never the same as the next. I started working here in 2006 right after graduating from a Christian College with a Christian Education Degree. I took a short sabbatical in 2010 right after I got married but have since returned. I have one furry family member at home, Gretta, a 100lb American bulldog, who loved to visit everyone at Quivira Road Animal Clinic.
