Teresa has been the office manager at amigo since 1997 when Dr. Jensen bought the practice.
Teresa has always loved people and their pets. She has developed many friendships over the last years with our clients making sure all their needs have been met. She feels a bond of trust is very important to our clients since we are caring for their furry children, to insure we love them as much as they do.
Over the years she has collected many pets, including several clinic kitties that would not have made it if not for Dr. Jensen's compassion.
The joy of her life is a little gray and white kitty who only has one eye named Ruby. When she was just 4 weeks old she had upper respiratory infection so bad that her eye swelled to 5x it's normal size. Dr. Jensen removed her eye and she amazingly made a full recovery.
She also has Saffron, a rescue chihuahua a client brought in after witnessing her being hit by a car. One leg was broken and needed extensive care. After nursing her back to health Saffron made herself a place in the "Jensteen Family"
