Author: Jennifer Schori
Dr. Schori is originally from Westminster, CA, but moved as a young child to Pennsylvania. Her experiences as a West Coast-East Coast transplant helped her understand the difficulties faced by children when moving to very different environments, as did the stories told by her Austrian-born father and her mother, whose grandparents hailed from Norway. Jennifer realized at a very early age that she wanted to be a veterinarian but “didn’t think they’d let me” because she was a girl. With encouragement from family and teachers and a heavy dose of self-motivation, she achieved her dream and continues working to try to help others achieve theirs. In 1993, Jennifer graduated from the University of Pennsylvania School of Veterinary Medicine. Five years later, she found a way to merge her love for veterinary medicine, writing, and teaching by joining a veterinary publishing company. Leaders from that company formed their own new veterinary publishing company in 2002. Jennifer has worked for them from its inception and has since earned a Master of Science in Learning Technology from Drexel University. She believes education and learning are lifelong endeavors and hopes to continue motivating and teaching as long as she possibly can.
