Our Veterinarians

Our team is united by their deep understanding and appreciation of the strength of the human-animal bond. We work together as integral members of your pet's healthcare team, but are far more than just co-workers: we are a family! Thank you for your interest in getting to know us.

Alison Jensen, DVM, MBA
Managing Veterinarian

Dr. Jensen began volunteering in the veterinary field at the age of 8 and worked her way up through the ranks beginning with cleaning kennels. After graduating from WSU College of Veterinary Medicine (Go Cougs!) in 2007, she completed intensive training in an elective small animal internship, rotating through specialties such as surgery, oncology, and emergency medicine in Sacramento and Phoenix. She then returned to the Seattle area to practiced emergency-exclusive medicine and surgery for 4 years. Her husband was transferred to the Army Baylor Campus at Fort Sam Houston, so she took a year off to join him and earn a Masters in Business Administration before moving to the San Diego area. She is loved by her 2 Great Danes, James & Tanq, a little Jack Russell named E.D. (for Extra Dog...a foster that she never let go of), and Stoli the cat.

Michelle Dejanovich, DVM
Associate Veterinarian

Dr. Dejanovich grew up in southern California and has always had a passion for animal welfare. In 1997, she moved to San Luis Obispo and earned a BS in Animal Science, then moved to Davis to work in the UCD Veterinary Teaching Hospital as an intensive care technician. She completed a rigorous equine internship in Scottsdale Arizona after graduating from vet school in 2008. We were lucky enough to woo her away from equine practice when she returned to southern California in 2012, where she enjoys hiking, horseback riding, and spending time at the beach. 

Monique Jones, DVM
Associate Veterinarian

Dr. Jones was born and raised in the San Francisco Bay Area. Her love of animals grew from having hamsters, a rabbit, and a dog as a child. She attended the University of California, Davis for her undergraduate degree while working part-time as a veterinary technician, then Tuskegee University for her veterinary degree.

After graduating, she completed a one-year general practice internship, which included experience with overnight emergency medicine. Her love and care for pets since childhood gives her an appreciation for pets as extended members of the family. She looks forward to providing the most sensitive and professional care to clients and their pets.

Robert Brooks, DVM

Dr. Brooks grew up in southern England before moving to Connecticut. After attending college in upstate New York, Dr. Brooks spent a year in North Carolina, then moved to Scotland to attend veterinary school at the University of Edinburgh. After graduation, he moved to San Diego to enjoy a change in weather and have the opportunity to enjoy the region’s excellent hiking and mountain biking trails.  Dr. Brooks has a python named Nyoka and looks forward to expanding his pet family once he settles in to his new home.
