Dr. Jarboe grew up on a crop farm near Loda, Illinois. Her veterinary aspirations were first kindled by caring for the family dog and cats. She graduated with a bachelor’s degree in animal sciences from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, where she went on to receive her Doctorate of Veterinary Medicine degree. The first six months following graduation were devoted to mixed-animal practice in Southern Illinois before joining the Banfield team. Her interests include endocrinology, internal medicine, and diagnostic imaging. Outside of work, she enjoys social dancing, hiking, and baking.
