Jenni grew up in Brisbane, and graduated from the University of Queensland in 1990. She moved to the Riverland in 1991 and has lived and worked in the Riverland since then.
She completed post-graduate studies in 1996 when she was awarded Membership of the Australian College of Veterinary Science in Small Animal Medicine – a challenging undertaking with a new baby (Sarah) who was allergic to sleeping. Tim joined the family in 1996, and after being a mum for a few years, she opened Jenni Trewren Veterinary Services in Berri in January 1999. The name of the business was changed to RIvaPetz Pet Care in 2008.
She feels very privileged to be able to provide veterinary care for so many wonderful Riverland pets, and to help ensure their health and wellbeing for their families.
Katie, her darling black & white cat, had been a part of her life since moving to the Riverland, and features in the “Jenni Trewren Veterinary Services” logo. Her portrait also hangs in the reception area, and she is featured in the leadlight window which is part of the front door. Katie passed away after 18 ½ years of love and companionship, but she is still the matriarch of Jenni Trewren Veterinary Services
The Trewren menagerie currently consists of; Matilda the Border Collie, Toffee the spoilt Terrier Cross, Molly the very naughty Burmese cat, Henry the cockatiel, and heaps of much loved Guinea Pigs with some really weird hairstyles and great personalities.
Jenni now also owns St Bernard’s Road Veterinary Clinic in Adelaide and divides her time between Berri and Adelaide.
