As a young child, Jacob was raised around many different types of farm animals as well as cats and dogs. He grew up with an interest in learning how to train animals as well as care for them.

As a teenager Jacob’s first job was working at a veterinary clinic in Salinas. He grew and learned so much in his six years working at the veterinarian clinic. Jacob started working at the SPCA for Monterey County in 2010 as an Animal Care Technician, soon earning a promotion to Assistant Shelter Manager. He now works as the Clinic Practice Manager of the SPCA Veterinary Clinic.
