Staff of Kenwood Animal Hospital

Jennifer Turner Mattioli, Practice Manager

Staff of Kenwood Animal HospitalPractice Manager at Kenwood Animal Hospital since 2005, Jen grew up in the Four Corners neighborhood of Silver Spring, Maryland. A lifelong animal lover, she has played host at one time or another to fish, mice, rats, gerbils, a bunny, innumerable cats- and just recently added a dog to menagerie that reside with her and her husband in their home on Capitol Hill.

Jen pursued degrees in Zoology at University of Maryland, and Operatic Voice Performance at the Benjamin T. Rome School of Music at the Catholic University of America. She has worked in the animal health field since her early teens, holding virtually every imaginable position at a 24 hour emergency hospital before becoming Trial Administrator for Animal Clinical Investigations, a veterinary clinical trial organization, with special interest in Comparative Oncology and the development of novel oncologic therapies for cats and dogs.

An associate of Dr. Dougherty's for over 20 years, Jen enjoys working at Kenwood Animal Hospital and Canine Clubhouse because the doctors and entire staff are committed to going above and beyond for every client and patient. She enjoys the warm atmosphere Kenwood offers, and the opportunity that this environment fosters for building relationships with Kenwood's clients and their companions.

Jen and her husband are active supporters of numerous local and national animal welfare and rescue organizations. She has a particular fondness for organizations committed to advocating for bats and other "underappreciated" creatures.

In keeping with the theme of rooting for the underdog, she and her husband are avid fans of the Washington Capitals (Let's Go Caps!). Jen also enjoys warmer pastimes such as kayaking, gardening, and cooking.
