Dr. Jennifer Powell grew up here in southeast Boise and she is so happy to be able to live and practice in her hometown. After graduating from Washington State University College of Veterinary Medicine in 2004, she moved back to Boise and spent several years as a staff veterinarian at the Idaho Humane Society, gaining confidence in medical and surgical skills. She has been working at Companions since 2007. She purchased the practice from Dr. Dianne Soule in 2021. Her focus in practice is doing what she can to support the human-animal-bond and to enhance quality of life for her patients. She is a conscientious doctor who does her best to treat each animal like her own. She also feels lucky that her buddy Fletcher is able to come to work with her every day as the quasi-office dog. When she is not working, Dr. Powell enjoys reading a book with a kitty on her lap, working in the garden, watching movies while crafting, and spending time with her husband and her family.
