Jean is Dr. Meincke's eldest daughter, and the passion for veterinary medicine runs deep in her blood. Before she could walk, she was in and out of her grandfather's veterinary hospital, who was a veterinarian in Basking Ridge N.J. In fact, her grandfather used to bat Jean's head out of the way so that he could treat his patients! As she grew older, Jean knew that veterinary medicine was her life's passion, and she began working in the field before she graduated from high school. In addition to managing Companion Animal Hospital, Jean loves to paint, swim, and do animal rescue work. She also has quite a zoo of her own at home, full of four-legged ‘fuzzy people’.
