Jillian Osborne

Veterinary Assistant/Client Care Representative

We are delighted to have added Jillian into our Sims Family back in October 2020 after completing her Veterinary Assistant course at St. Lawrence College. During her placement program, she was a welcomed asset to our clinic, and we just couldn’t let her go! Jillian took no time fitting into our dynamic team and understanding our hospital’s goals. Jillian has a Rhodesian Ridgeback named Puppy, and a beautiful Maine Coon kitty, Gus, who makes up her furry family. They are excellent patients when they visit us at the hospital. We look forward to seeing what shenanigans they get up to through photos and videos while we have “Mom” at work.

Jillian enjoys spending time outdoors with her fur babies, reading, travelling and trying all of the foods her partner cooks up as a chef! Jillian’s genuine excitement and love are palpable in the front office when our patients come in; so often is met with tail wags and hearty purrs. She is an ambitious, dedicated, and hard-working VA that we are thrilled to have adopted into our Sims Animal Hospital family. We look forward to growing as a team with Jillian on our hospital roster!
