Jennifer Witt , D.V.M. Hi, I am the newbie at Dunlap Veterinary Clinic!!! I attended the University of Illinois from 1997-2001 and received a Bachelor’s of Science degree in Animal Sciences. I then stayed in good old Champaign-Urbana and attended the University of Illinois College of Veterinary Medicine from 2001-2005 where I received another Bachelor’s of Science degree in veterinary science and a Doctor of Veterinary Medicine. Having grown up in East Peoria, IL, I knew I didn’t want to move too far from home, so here I am in Dunlap, IL.
My favorite things to do are playing softball, reading, hanging out with friends and family and anything outdoors.
At the moment I have two guinea pigs, which are named Wicket and Wookie and a 110lb. Golden Retriever named Angus.
My husband, Aaron, and I have been married since June 24, 2006 and were blessed with our first two-legged child, a baby girl named Kendyl last October.
