Dr. Jennifer Pursley, DVM | Associate Veterinarian
Born and raised in Orange County, Dr. Pursley inherited a love of animals and medicine from her family. She was the first among them to attend university. Initially planning on becoming a horse vet, a bad fall and spinal injury at the age of 14 necessitated the use of a wheelchair so small animals became the new plan, and she’s been addicted to them ever since.
She worked in a variety of veterinary staff positions while earning her B.S. in biology at University of California, Irvine. Dr. Pursley then continued on to University of California, Davis for veterinary school. Professionally, she has special interests in endocrinology, dermatology, behavior medicine and small mammals, such as rabbits. She lives in Tustin with her husband, Greg, their 2 dogs and cat (all rescues). In her spare time, she enjoys scrapbooking, camping and throwing board game parties.
