Jen Soper

Laboratory Scientist

Jen performs all in-house clinical diagnostic tests to help our clinicians diagnose and treat our patients, as well as help our pathologists determine cause of death of necropsied animals. 

Jen graduated from UC Santa Cruz with a bachelor's degree in molecular, cell and developmental biology. Jen isn’t new to the Center's community and worked as a Research Assistant from 2010 through 2012, coordinating research projects and supporting the necropsy team with sample collection. She was also a volunteer in the Center's clinical lab from 2021 through 2022. 

Jen enjoys tide-pooling and hanging out with her siblings’ dogs, and is trying to learn how to kite surf!
