Jenn Martindale

Veterinary Assistant / Receptionist

My name is Jennifer Martindale. I’m a Veterinary Assistant and I’ve worked at the Boulder Creek Vet for 8 years. My favorite part of the job is caring for hospitalized animals, placing IV catheters, running bloodwork, taking X-rays, and helping ease clients stress/worry when they have a sick pet. I chose this profession because as a young girl I’ve always been fascinated with the medical field and I combined that love with my love of animals. My hobbies when I’m not at work are hiking with my dogs Phoenix and Skylar and my son Jeremy. Searching for mushrooms in the winter and collecting gemstones.

Bella Martin

Veterinary Assistant

My name is Bella. I started working at this wonderful clinic in February of 2022 behind the scenes as a kennel assistant, which I absolutely loved (and still do). I was eventually inspired by all my coworkers’ hard work to switch positions and learn an entirely new set of skills as a veterinary assistant. I am in school to become a certified veterinary technician and further my knowledge in this field. I’ve always had a passion for animals but my interest grew while accompanying my grandma to her various foster/ rescue pups’ vet visits and watching them become healthy and brave enough to find a loving home. As for what I do in my free time- I have 4 family dogs, a cat, and two rabbits that are my pride and joy and love to keep me busy.
