Dr. Jobe has always had a passion for both animals and biological science which led her to seek a career path towards veterinary medicine very early in life. Though she grew up around several diverse types of animals, ranging from horses to hamsters, her primary medical focus has always been small animal general practice for dogs and cats. Dr. Jobe truly values the human-animal bond between the clients and patients at Falcon Valley Animal Hospital. Being able to help pet owners learn more about their pet’s health is an extremely rewarding part of her career. Dr. Jobe is a member of the American Veterinary Medical Association and the National Veterinary Accreditation Program. During the year, Dr. Jobe participates in several hours of continuing education and enjoys attending national veterinary conferences to stay up to date with the newest information. In her spare time, Dr. Jobe enjoys spending time with family and friends, walking/hiking outdoors, doing arts/crafts, and listening to a wide variety of music.
