Jennifer Hostetler DVM

Hi, I’m Dr. Jenn Hostetler! I graduated from the Michigan State University College of Veterinary Medicine in 2012. After graduation, I took a job here in Auburn and worked in the area for five years. After having my daughter, we decided to move back to the midwest. Once there, we quickly realized our hearts were in Central New York and that ownership was in my future. When I came upon the opportunity to purchase such an amazing clinic in CNY, I knew it was meant to be.

I am very excited to continue providing exceptional care to your fur family and to carry on the tradition of a privately owned practice here at Chestnut Ridge. My husband and I have one daughter, Violet. We have two dogs: Darwin and Sparky, and seven cats: Ozzie, Pumpkin, Coconut, Taco, Coraline, Pearl and Atticus.

Jess, Veterinary Assistant

Hi I’m Jess! I grew up with dogs, cats, and horses which made me want to pursue taking care of animals as my career. I graduated from Skaneateles High School and got my veterinary assistant certification shortly after. I’ve worked here since July 2019 and have enjoyed meeting and caring for all of your pets ever since. When I’m not at work, I enjoy spending time with my family, photography, baking, and walks with my dogs. I currently have 3 labs, Tucker, Myah, and George and and two cats, Lenny and Taffy. They are my whole life!

Jessica, Receptionist

Hi, I’m Jessica! I grew up with a love of animals, and am always excited to meet more fur-babies. I graduated from East Syracuse – Minoa High School and then got my Bachelors degree from Sacred Heart University. I have previously worked at a Doggie Day Care and from then on I knew I wanted to work with animals everyday! I started at Chestnut Ridge Animal Clinic in May 2021. My husband and I have four dog children, Sadie Mae, Paisley Lynn, Tater Tot and Bailey Grace. They are our babies! I enjoy reading, traveling and hanging out with my nieces and nephews (both animal and human).

Bailey, Veterinary Assistant

Hi I’m Bailey! I am an Aussie mom of 2, Mila and Moose. I also recently adopted two cats, Malaki and Mocha. I grew up having dogs and cats and a love for all animals. I recently graduated from SUNY Fredonia with a bachelors in Exercise Science. After changing my career path several times, I realized my passion for animals was too strong to ignore and have decided to apply to Veterinary School. I hope to one day become a doctor and am very excited to be here.
