Jean Goh, DVM

She has a particular interest in surgery, field medicine, and nonprofit veterinary work, and is dedicated to making quality veterinary care accessible to underserved communities.

“I have been a supporter of Fix Our Ferals since my first volunteer stint at one of the MASH-style clinics over ten years ago at the Hegenberger location. The original mission of FOF is at the heart of everything I believe in—getting to the free-roaming parents of the kittens that fill our shelters in an endless stream.”

Vanessa Rivera has loved animals since childhood, always bringing home any animal that would follow.
Vanessa says, “I started my career after graduating from the Veterinary Assisting program. I found a passion to help animals and seeing the rewarding side of it. Every scratch and bite I’ve gotten, I’ll get again if it means to help another animal! My favorite hobbies are exploring new places, making art, and listening to music. I love spoiling my week old kitten Jack, who was found lost wandering the street!”
