Dr. Nicole Petschauer, DVM - Clinic Veterinarian

Following graduation from veterinary school in 2009, Dr. Petschauer decided that surgery was her calling and especially high volume spay/ neuter surgery. She has been Best Friends’ Mission Hills high volume surgeon for 7 years, where she also assumed a variety of administrative roles before recently accepting our offer to become Heaven on Earth Animal Clinic’s veterinarian. She provides her services in high volume spay/neuter surgery but also specialty surgical procedures. She and Dr. Winhoffer have worked together for 3 years and will bring that history of teamwork to Heaven on Earth.

Jami Goff, RVT - Clinic Manager

As Clinic Manager, Jami Goff brings a strong background in clinic management, hands-on care, and medical expertise. With 15+ years of experience in general practice, Jami brings a wealth of knowledge from the veterinary field. Holding a Registered Veterinary Technician License makes her an ideal fit. After starting as a kennel worker, then vet assistant and achieving her RVT license, she was promoted to management. She has been working in rescue for 8+ years because she felt she could make a bigger impact. She loves the fast pace and multitasking that comes along with the job. Jami enjoys creating a positive impact on the quality of life for so many animals. Every day is something new to experience, including spay/neuter, more critical surgical cases, wound care, and hospitalized patients. She loves finding new ways to be more efficient and prioritize our cases. She has a special place in her heart for diabetic dogs and medical hospice fosters. Jami enjoys spending time with her dogs and cats, who are all from Los Angeles City or County shelters.

Jennifer Parsignault - SpayShip Director

Jennifer grew up with cats and horses and ultimately found her way to the rescue community through a colony of feral cats in her neighborhood and has never turned back. She joined Heaven on Earth’s Board in 2006. In 2009, she founded Heaven on Earth’s SpayShip Transport Program. SpayShip, a TNR program which is free to the community, is designed to help facilitate the spaying and neutering of cats — strays, ferals and community cats. As the program’s unpaid Director, working in partnership with FixNation, she is responsible for facilitating over 7,800 spays & neuters to date. She lives in the San Fernando Valley with her husband and cats Bailey and Heaven on Earth alum Christopher, along with an ever-changing census of fosters.
