Jennifer Lagorio Office Manager

Jenn has been working at Blackhawk Veterinary Hospital since June 2004. Originally, she was hired as a receptionist. Soon after being hired, she discovered her love and talent for animals. It wasn’t long before Jenn became Dr. Nick Bricaud’s technician.  After 9 years of being his technician, Dr. Nick purchased the practice. He felt Jenn would be great as the office manager, her current position at the practice. Lucky for us she is a jack of all trades!

Jenn lives with her wonderful family, husband Jeremiah and 2 children, Drayden and Olivia. She owns 2 dog and 2 cats.  Stunner is a pit bull mix that she rescued and Zeppelin is a foster that she ended up keeping.  She also loves her 2 cats, Emory and Thor (one of our hospital cats), a gecko, Gex, and a ton of fish!

In her spare time, Jenn teaches yoga and is very involved in her children’s school, sports and dance activities. She is a football fanatic and loves to take the dogs on adventures, as well as spend time with family and friends.
