Meet the Doctor
Dr. Jennifer Trujillo, DVM
Veterinary medicine and animals have always been a passion for me, and I am so fortunate to have had the support needed to make it into a career! Growing up in Michigan, I was the kind of child who was always bringing home some kind of sick or injured animal to take care of. I was lucky to have parents who are also animal lovers, and who allowed me to cultivate my passion.
After spending a few years as a chemist, those early experiences ultimately led me to veterinary school at North Carolina State University. After graduating in 2007 I have had the opportunity to work at several excellent hospitals where I have been able to expand my medical knowledge. In 2018, I decided to strike on my own and opened Roswell Veterinary Associates so I can offer the kind of high quality and personalized veterinary care that I am passionate about.
The core principle that we founded Roswell Veterinary Associates on is the basic idea of truly serving the needs of our clients and their pets to the best of our ability. I opened the practice in 2018 to provide the client experience and connections that I so value using the most advanced technology, medicine, and surgical procedures.
I am a strong believer in preventative medicine which encompasses diet and nutrition, health screening, and dental care. I have worked hard to build a team of dedicated professionals who are aligned with my goals and vision.
Outside of work, I enjoy spending time with my three children and husband. We can often be found across the street at Leita Thompson park fishing or hiking. Our family also includes Eloise, a Dogue de Bordeaux, and our tabby cat Pepper.
