Jessica Briere Scarpa
Jessica started at our Marlborough Animal Hospital thirteen years ago working her way up from kennel assistant to veterinary assistant. During this time she enrolled her dog Quincy in puppy kindergarten at Tails-U-Win, a dog training center owned by Leslie Nelson. From there she became more involved at Tails-U-Win assisting in the Family Dog Program and also other dog sports such as dock diving, agility, and Rally Obedience. For the last four years she has co-taught three classes each week with Leslie. In the meantime, Jessica transferred from our Marlborough office to our Middletown office. She became the manager of Doggie Daycare at Pieper’s Sit, Stay, and Play around seven years ago. She will now be utilizing her knowledge and experience in dog behavior to help grow our dog training program here at Pieper-Olson. She will be offering Puppy Kindergarten and Family Dog classes. Outside of work she participates in a wide variety of dog activities with her German Shepherd Dog named Cole. Jessica and her husband Joe also share their home with their Pomeranian named Marilyn.
