Jennifer Henne

henne [dot] 8 [at] osu [dot] edu

Jennifer Henne is a graduate of the Columbus State Community College Veterinary Technician Program. She enjoyed her internship here at The Ohio State University Veterinary Medical Center and decided to stay and work in the small animal emergency and intensive care unit after graduation. Jennifer has been working at the Veterinary Medical Center since 2006 and began volunteering for the Veterinary Outreach Program because she believed in the work that was being done and felt that she had a lot to offer. As the Veterinary Outreach Program continued to grow, the need for a technician did as well, thanks to donor support of the program, the Veterinary Medical Center was able to hire Jennifer as the lead technician for the Veterinary Outreach Program in March 2011. Jennifer has a love for all creatures great and small; she enjoys her two large dogs and two cats.
