Dr. Jocelyn Hollway, DVM
Dr. Hollway is a York County native and realized her love for animals at a very early age. Growing up on a farm surrounded by horses, dogs and cats, it was easy to recognize her passion for the field of veterinary medicine.
Dr. Hollway attended Ross University School of Veterinary Medicine in St. Kitts and completed her clinical year at Kansas State University.
Upon graduation from veterinary school, she started her career at an emergency hospital outside of Philadelphia where she worked for two years. After giving birth to her beautiful daughter, she and her husband decided to return to York to be closer to family.
Dr. Hollway has 2 dogs, Godiva a “coconut retriever” from St. Kitts, and Jamie a rescue from the SPCA. She also has 5 cats; Louie, who has saved many lives of his own as a feline blood donor at Kansas State University; Fendi, a long haired purr-machine and lap-warmer; Vanilla Bean, a rescue who melted her heart when a client found her outside; Mya, affectionately known as “My-My” by her daughter; and lastly, our newest addition, a cat who thinks 3 legs is all you really need, Hiccup.
Dr. Jen Johnston, DVM
I am a York County native who grew up riding and showing horses. I worked for a small animal practice in New Cumberland and fell in love with the beauty of the human-animal bond. This began my journey towards becoming a veterinarian.
I did my undergraduate work at Penn State University where I majored in Dairy and Animal Science. I went on to graduate from Ross University School of Veterinary Medicine in 2000 after completing my clinical year at the University of Georgia. Upon graduation, I completed an equine internship at Genesee Valley Equine Clinic in Rochester, New York. I then practiced small animal medicine in Buffalo, New York until 2003. I returned to Pennsylvania in 2003 where I worked at several small animal practices in the Harrisburg area.
In 2011, I pursued my interest in shelter medicine and joined the staff of the York County SPCA. I was involved in many aspects of shelter medicine including becoming proficient in high-volume spay and neuter techniques, starting a volunteer and internship program for the York Technical Institute Veterinary Technician program and becoming the SPCA Medical Director. I was also involved with advising and the start up of additional shelters in the area.
In 2019, an opportunity presented itself to become a faculty instructor at the York Technical Institute (YTI) in York PA. I became an instructor for their large animal medicine program and instructed several small animal classes. I thoroughly enjoyed working with the veterinary technician students and watching them grow and become a valued part of our profession.
Although I thoroughly enjoyed experiencing the many opportunities in veterinary medicine, I found that I missed small animal medicine. I joined the Valley Green Veterinary Hospital team in March of 2021. I reside locally with my husband and son and our active shelter-adopted mix boxer named Wuzzby.. Outside of veterinary medicine, I am an active member of the Code 3 Associates which is an Animal Search and Rescue team out of Colorado. I enjoy spending time with my family, scrapbooking, ballroom dancing, kickboxing and horseback riding.
