Carmen and Jesse have developed their passion for animals at a young age so it was destined that they would find themselves a career in the animal medical field.
Carmen started working in the veterinary field in 1997 when she decided to get an after school job at an animal hospital in Bay Ridge, Brooklyn. She quickly found herself as head technician of the clinic a few years later. Jesse began his career by working in an animal boarding facility. In 2009, while transitioning jobs to a new animal clinic, he joined a team, where he officially met Carmen.Carmen and Jesse became fast friends and it only took one year before these two fell in love.
In 2010, Dr Zawie took a position as an associate at the same clinic as Carmen and Jesse. A couple of years later in 2012, when Dr Zawie decided to open his first animal hospital in Bensonhurst, he offered both Carmen and Jesse a position. After several years of hard work Carmen and Jesse were promoted to managers of Bensonhurst Vet Care.
In 2017, Jesse and Carmen officially tied the knot! It has been an amazing journey for them both. When they are not at work they love spending all of their time with Jesse’s 10 year old son, Jacob. Carmen has enjoyed being a stepmom since Jacob was 2 years old. They love vacationing, and spending time with their family, friends and their 19 year old cat Henny.
