Jade Kanar


Jade is a certified veterinary technician (CVT) who has been in veterinary medicine since 2010. Jade has a passion for feline medicine as well as anesthesia and pain management. She works hard to provide low stress visits for all pets who come into the hospital. Jade enjoys educating pet parents so they are comfortable with all aspects of their pet’s treatment. Her favorite part about working at West Park Animal Hospital is being able to devote ample time and attention to each pet’s individual needs. Jade plans to further her knowledge by becoming a Veterinary Technician Specialist in the near future. Jade shares her home with her fiancé Ethan, two dogs (Doug and Haley), two cats (Puddin and Rooster) and a veiled chameleon named Kimmie. On the weekends you can often find her at one of Florida’s famous beaches, or at the nearest Starbucks.

Hannah Parker

Hannah is a Florida native and originally from Madeira beach. She has over 8 years of experience in the veterinary field, and her absolute favorite thing is forming lasting relationships with her patients and their pet parents. She comes to work every day looking for opportunities to make a difference in the lives of our four-legged family members. In addition to practicing as a veterinary technician, she also has a strong focus on research and eventually wants to enrich her patients’ lives through her studies. Like all of us in the veterinary profession, Hannah has always had a strong love of animals. When she was in high school, she raised and showed swine. Now she has 2 dogs, 3 cats and one ball python of her own (all rescues), and she gets hours of entertainment observing the unique friendship that her cats have with her ball python.

Alli Paulo

Alli grew up in Cocoa Beach, Florida where her love of caring for animals grew while she was volunteering at a local shelter in high school. While pursuing her Bachelor of Science at the University of South Florida, Alli had the opportunity to work with a large diverse number of exotic animals during her zoo internships. After touring the veterinary clinics on site at the zoos, she decided she was more interested in the medical side of animal care. Beginning as a kennel technician she worked her way up to assisting veterinary technicians and now works hard to provide exceptional customer service.

She takes pride in knowing that she can help solidify the bond between owner and pet through compassionate client care and education. Alli has two fur babies of her own; a mischievous calico named Miss Kitty and her German Shepherd rescue, Bear.

Sam Jacobson

Sam decided to make the leap into the veterinary industry after spending 9 years in customer service and food and beverage. She has always been drawn to animals and often spends her free time volunteering at the zoo as a guest engagement ambassador. One of the favorite parts of her new career is meeting all the pets that make up the West Park Animal Hospital family. When a dog or cat comes into the hospital, she simply cannot help but jump up and offer treats, kind words or reassuring pets. It also makes her day swapping stories and adorable photos of dogs and cats with all our clients. When Sam is not welcoming four-legged friends and their family into West Park Animal Hospital, she is spending time with her husband or longboarding with her own beloved dogs, Donora and Adelai.
