Dr. Jennifer Keating began her veterinary career right here at Newport Mesa Animal Hospital in 2002. She worked under Dr. Tom for 10 years while continuing her education for acceptance into a veterinary school. She graduated from UCI with a Bachelor’s Degree in Biology, then continued on for a second Bachelor’s Degree in Animal Health at Cal Poly Pomona. During her initial employment with us, she obtained her RVTg (Registered Veterinary Technologist) license. In 2012 Dr. Keating was accepted to the University of Minnesota Veterinary School. She completed her final clinical rotation with Dr. Tom at Newport Mesa Animal Hospital in early 2016, and ultimately graduated and obtained her DVM license from the University of Minnesota in the Spring of 2016.
Following graduation, Dr. Jennifer Keating happily accepted a full-time job offer to return to Newport Mesa Animal Hospital to work right alongside her lifelong Veterinary teacher, Dr. Tom. She now is working as our 2nd full-time veterinarian, and we couldn’t be happier to have her back in the NMAH family!
