Dr. Jessica Harriman
Chief Trouble Maker
I grew up in Gahanna, then moved far away, earned my Bachelor's in Wyoming, lived and played in Alaska for a while, went back to Vet School at Colorado State, then realized you can take the girl out of the Buckeye State, but you can't take the Buckeye out of the girl. So, along with a couple two-legged and a few four-legged kids I've acquired along the way, I'm back home, building the kind of practice I'd want my family to come to. I like to listen. I like to partner with people to help their animals. I like to partner with animals to help their people. When I'm not having a ball at work, I do my best to keep my main squeezes in line: Tyler and Kate (the little two-legged ones), Bizzy, Lucy, and Sara (the feline ones), and Ty and Sally (our goofy goats). Rocky (the old man) is the most difficult to keep in line, but he usually helps straighten the others out, so I keep him around, too. Oh yeah, and I love to travel and hope to find a place for more of it in the midst all the chaos.

I was born and raised in Johnstown and shortly after graduating from Northridge in 2005, moved to Georgia. I moved back to Johnstown in 2013 to raise my Tribe. First and foremost I’m a Mommy. I have four littles, three boys and one Princess, Kaynen -12, Hunter -8, Prestyn -5 and Tatym -3 months. They keep me on my toes so between them and keeping Happy Tails running (because let’s be real...I’m the face of this place!) free time is rare. I love to travel, the beach is my sanctuary and lucky for me the kids agree so we go at least twice a year. Outside of all that, my hobbies include snacking and napping! :D
client service coordinator
director of first impressions
After being a stay at home mom for the past twelve years, I recently found my awesome work family at Happy Tails. Along with raising our six daughters and one son, I have four German Sherpherds and a Morkie. My husband and I have lived in Johnstown for about 10 years. We love to watch our Johnnies play sports! I also enjoy reading, watching movies, visiting the Smoky Mountains, and hanging out with family and friends.
Feral cat whisperer
I have a rescue sanctuary called Clark's Ark Pet Sanctuary. I have 3 daughters and 1 son. I enjoy working with feral cats and SNACK (Spay/Neuter Area Cats and Kittens). Pizza is my favorite food, and when I'm not in the clinic, I love going to 80's music concerts and spending time with my family.
ringleader of clinic shenanigans
I am an avid animal lover! I help run our family owned animal sanctuary (Clark's Ark). During my free time, I love to be outdoors fishing, or playing my trombone. Cheeseburgers are my favorite food! I like to collect rocks, and love to visit various outdoor parks to sight-see.
resident actual horse wrangler
I graduated from Johnstown High School in 2015 and am currently working in the horse barn and attending classes at Otterbein University as a Pre-Vet Major. I have two fur kids of my own Maggy, May aka "The Queen" (Yorkipoo), and Diesel (German Shepard). Animals are my life, and I couldn't imagine my life/future without them. My favorite food is Taco Bell and anything my mom cooks. Some of my favorite things outside of being the only male at Happy Tails and dealing with these crazy/wild women are to camp, hike, and spend time with friends and family!
Lynne was born in and resides in Licking County. She's groomed pets for 30 years and has shown them for 2 years. Over the years, she's owned hunting breeds, terriers and hounds, and sporting breeds. When she's not making pets gleam and shine, she can be found at Seneca Lake fishing for bluegill or doing housesitting/security work (which is her moonlighting gig). And when she is making pets gleam and shine, she carries on lengthy, in depth conversations with them so every one of them feels like a movie star.
