Dr. Jessica Kysar was born and raised in Farmington. She graduated from FHS in 2008, GO SCORPS! Her family has lived in the area since the late 1930s and has prided themselves on serving the community. They have served the community through politics, business, agriculture and much more. Her love for animals started at a young age growing up on her family’s ranch at Cedar Hill. Although her passion is horses and cattle, she prides herself on serving the community and helping animals of all sizes.

Dr. Kysar graduated from NMSU in 2012 and was accepted to the Kentucky Equine Management Internship in the heart of horse racing country Lexington, Kentucky. Upon completing her internship she was hired to work as a veterinary assistant for an equine theriogenologist at Rood and Riddle Equine Hospital for two years. Although she loved her time in Kentucky, she found herself missing her New Mexican roots and moved back to work as a surgery assistant at SJVH for a year before heading off to vet school.

After graduating from veterinary school from Ross University and completing her clinical training at Oklahoma State University, Dr. Kysar was thrilled to accept a job at SJVH and carry on her family tradition of serving the people and animals of San Juan County.

In her spare time Dr. Kysar enjoys riding/training her ranch horses, traveling, sports, working out, spending time with her family and her two dogs Duke and Kai.
