Taylor was born and raised in Connecticut. At the end of 2015 she decided to make the move to Florida with her mom and sisters to be closer to her grandparents who live here in Naples. Taylor’s always had the passion to work with animals ever since she could remember. She’s had all types of animals from turtles to ferrets to geckos. She went to school for veterinary technology from 2015-2016 and is planning on taking her VTNE national exam to become certified! Taylor has had experience in an emergency care but decided to try out general practice when she started working here in November. With her free time she likes yoga, hiking and kayaking!

​Jenna is a native of Southwest Florida. Her love for caring for animals stemmed from always having animals growing up, from Ferrets to Dogs, her family always had animals in their care. In 2009, after feeling a change of scenery she moved to Asheville, NC where she attended Asheville-Buncombe Technical Community College and became a Certified Veterinary Technician. After getting married and having their first child Jenna and her husband decided to move back to Naples to be closer to family and the sunshine. She feels very lucky to be a member of the Angel Animal Hospital staff.
