Meet the Staff

Jennifer O'DriscollJennifer L. O’Driscoll, DVM, MS

Dr. O’Driscoll’s cat career started at age 10 with her first paying job cat-sitting for her neighbor’s cats, Zooey and Waders. Since then, she has worked with animals at vet clinics in Louisiana and Maryland, a zoo in Rhode Island, a pig farm in Ireland, an animal shelter in Washington, DC, and a farm animal sanctuary in West Virginia.

Her undergraduate degree in biology is from Brown University, and she also earned a Master of Science in Animals and Public Policy (her thesis was about farm animal welfare). After graduating from Tufts University School of Veterinary Medicine in 2004, Dr. O’Driscoll completed a small animal medicine and surgery internship at Wheat Ridge Animal Hospital in Denver. Her next job was as a neurology intern and then neurology resident at a specialty veterinary practice in Maryland.

After switching gears and moving to amazing Lawrence, Kansas, in 2007, Dr. O’Driscoll worked as a veterinarian at Veterinary Specialty and Emergency Center in Overland Park, the Lawrence Humane Society, and a local small animal practice. In 2011, her dream of providing care exclusively for cats and their people came true with the opening of the Cat Clinic of Lawrence at 1701 Massachusetts St.
