Dr. Jones grew up in Pittsburgh Pennsylvania. From the age of 10, when she got her first cockatiel, followed a few years later by a bearded dragon, Dr. Jones was hooked on exotic animals and their care. During her undergraduate summers in Pittsburgh, Dr. Jones interned in the veterinary department of the National Aviary and also worked as a veterinary assistant in a private practice that treated exotic pets. These opportunities sealed her desire to become an avian and exotic veterinarian.
Dr. Jones received her VMD from the University of Pennsylvania in 2009. After a 1-year small animal rotating internship in Virginia, Dr. Jones moved to San Diego to complete a 3-year residency in avian medicine and surgery at the Avian & Exotic Animal Hospital. She then continued to work at the hospital as an Associate Veterinarian. Dr. Jones and her husband recently relocated to the Philadelphia area to be closer to family.
