Jennifer Kirkpatrick joins Blue Heron Consulting with over a decade of experience in business and veterinary medicine. Jen’s love of animals began at an early age after volunteering at the local humane society and continued while caring for a myriad of animals at her family’s equestrian center. Growing up in this environment ignited her passion for nature and strengthened her bond with animals.

Originally from the New Orleans area, she was lured West by the majestic mountains and sunshine to attend the University of Denver where she received a bachelor’s degree in Mass Communication. Afterwards, she decided to venture even further West to attain her M.B.A. in Organizational Development from Loyola Marymount University in Los Angeles, CA. Upon graduation, she started and managed an organic, fair-trade, environmentally focused retail store for several years. Missing a connection with and advocating for animals, she obtained her certification as a veterinary technician in 2015 and has worked in shelter medicine and general practice as a CVT since then.

Jen is excited to combine her years of experience in the veterinary industry with her business background to help clients realize their dreams and find success. In addition to her role with Blue Heron Consulting, Jen works at a local clinic in Fort Collins, CO. In her free time, she enjoys socializing with both humans and huskies alike.
