Jessica DuFriend

Hello! My name is Jessica, and I am one of the technicians here at Bay Moorings Animal Hospital. I was born in Paducah, Kentucky, but as a military brat, I really grew up all over the country! I joined the Army myself at the young age of 17 and served in Afghanistan from 2010 to 2011. I’ve always wanted to work with animals. In fact, on my kindergarten interview, I answered "Veterinarian" when they asked what I wanted to be when I grew up!

I moved to St. Petersburg when my service with the Army ended in 2012. I bought a house in 2016 for my zoo, which includes my two dogs (Kira the Husky and Molly the pit/lab), my parrot (Pepe), my cockatiel (Birdie) my ball python (Draco), and my Star Wars themed fish tank! When I'm not at work, you can find me playing video games, relaxing at the beach, reading, or making something artsy.

I can't wait to meet you and your pets and sincerely look forward to bringing exceptional customer service to the BMAH clients and getting to know your 4-legged fur babies better!
