Jenny started off working for John Yeaman at his Stanton Street practice in 1977 as a full time nurse. In 1983 his practice was compulsory purchased to become what is now Morrisons car park and he amalgamated with the 'Oliver and Jenkins' practice that became the Avenue Veterinary Centre.

Jenny was offered one of two positions, either continue as a full time nurse or take on an admin role which she chose to do and has done an excellent job ever since.
