Wicklund Veterinary Care

Jennifer Wicklund grew up wanting to be a veterinarian, as do many young girls. But in college, that dream got away from her and she took up the study of geology. "This led me to working in the field of paleontology for a short time and having the experience of a lifetime digging dinosaur bones in the deserts of Wyoming!" Jennifer said.
After growing up in Medford, Wicklund spent 16 years in Minnesota, and after a conversation with a long-lost relative, decided to pursue veterinary studies as a second career. "Upon graduation from veterinary school in 2007, I moved back to Medford to be closer to my family and start private veterinary practice at Best Friends Animal Hospital in Talent," Jennifer said.

Ashland Outdoor Store Celebrating Twenty Years

When Steve Rowe moved to Ashland in 1992, he had all kinds of experience in the business world. He had been coming to Ashland for the Shakespeare Festival for many years, and after cashing out of his job in the corporate world in Seattle, he toyed around with ideas to start a new business.
"I had no previous experience in retail, but I knew what it took to start a business from the ground up," Steve said. "I am an avid fly fisherman and love being in the outdoors, so I chose an outdoor specialty store because it was about being in the outdoors. It is a way to connect both to people and the outside."
