Dr Waddington, better known as Doc Jerri, was born and raised in Alaska. She knew at the age of 5 that she was going to be a Veterinarian and never allowed anything to sway her from that goal. After moving down to Washington for a short time she settled in Nevada where she received her Bachelor’s degree in Biology from the University of Nevada at Reno. She then moved to California to work on her Master’s degree in physiology with a reproduction emphasis (which is kind of funny since she spays and neuters everything) at the University of California at Davis. UC Davis is also where she received her Veterinary Degree in 2003.
She and Sparky have lived in Lake County since she graduated Vet school. She lives in Lower lake and has 2 horses (Irish, an Appaloosa, and Apollo, a Thoroughbred) , 5 dogs (John and Bailey her Bouvier des Flandres, Jimmy and Amber her Golden Retrievers and Millie her Kelpie), and 3 cats (Frosty, Cloudy and Dusty).
She loves Lake County and enjoys riding her horses and playing with her dogs out in the fields and trails around the area.
