Bailey Barber

Bailey Barber joined the Equine Department in June of 2019 and a lot of you probably see her frequently keeping our barn and patients going on a day-to-day basis. Bailey grew up riding and has always loved animals, which made her the perfect fit for our team in the barn. When not assisting Dr. Cooley with procedures or tending to hospitalized cases; Bailey can often be found doing anything outdoors from barrel racing, to working on the farm.

Jennifer Young

Jenn has been with the TAH Equine Department since August 2020. She started working as a part-time farm call technician but her skills and work ethic quickly earned her a full-time job. She is now in the office most days, but does get out on the road with Dr. Chastain once a week. Jenn is originally from Crystal Lake, Illinois, just outside of Chicago. She is a life-long horse lover and has experience with several western sports, vaulting, and dressage/eventing.
