About Us

Jessey Scheip

LVT, VTS (Behavior), KPA-CTP

Boarded Behavior Nurse

Having grown up with a menagerie of critters, Jessey has been training animals, in some capacity, since she was about 10 years old. Starting with horses, she moved on to her first dog: Delwyn, who is still with her today. In 2011, she graduated with a degree in Veterinary Technology and started pursuing the behavior specialty in earnest. She has been working with Dr. Pike since September 2016. 

As of 2018, Jessey is a graduate of the Academy of Veterinary Behavior Technicians (AVBT) and is one of less than 20 boarded behavior nurses in the world. This 3-5 year process is designed to truly test her knowledge on all aspects of behavioral therapy in a variety of species: medical, pharmaceutical, learning theory, client education, ethics, law, and practical applications. 

On a more personal note, Jessey lives in the country with her husband, their sons, Edwyn and Walter, plus her dog and cat.
