What keeps you busy?
NOAH - our staff does an exemplary job of providing medical care to our community companion animals. I am very proud to be the founder and primary veterinarian for this hospital.
NOAH, of course, and Family! We thoroughly enjoy rounding up kids for hiking, camping, canoeing and sports.
My life would be simpler if...
We could play with our kids all day --- and if temper tantrums and sibling rivalry didn't exist.
Would you slow down if you could?
I would like to spend more time with family, but that generally involves adventures, travel and movement. Both in work and in family responsibilities, I am compelled to put forth my best effort. And like any parent, I question the correct balance of spending time with my kids and providing for them. Fortunately, they are able to come to the hospital when they need extra Mom time.
How much sleep is really necessary? Because time is short and dreams are big. In 20 years, I want to review the story of my adult life and be happy and impressed that I lived it.
What's your guiltiest pleasure?
King Arthur Gluten-Free Brownies. And Nicole's GF chocolate cookies!
What would you do if you won the lottery?
Spend more time hiking above 8,000 feet in the mountains.
Jennifer Lesser, DVM
Dr. Jennifer Lesser graduated from the Virginia-Maryland Regional College of Veterinary Medicine in 2000. Prior to settling in the Upper Valley, she enjoyed ownership of Ocean View Animal Hospital which serves pets of coastal Delaware and Maryland. She also was fortunate to spend two years living and working in the mountains of Southwest Colorado.
Patients of Dr. Lesser benefit from receiving the highest personalized care, in partnership with each patient's family. In addition to focusing on individual attention, she strives to provide the best medical advice and therapy available. Making time for continuing education via medical conferences, computer resources and routine specialist consultations is a priority that receives daily attention.
When not caring for patients at Norwich Regional Animal Hospital, she most enjoys spending time outside with her family. They are claimed by a German Short Haired Pointer, a sweet Hound and two beautiful cats, adopted from the Upper Valley Humane Society.
