Hello, my name is Jenny! I love working in this community. I grew up in Marshall, IL and I am blessed to do what I love in my hometown. I graduated from MHS in 2001. While growing up I was surrounded by a variety of animals and always knew I wanted to work in the veterinary field. I was very gratetful to have the opportunity to work at Bratt Animal Hospital in Terre Haute, Indiana, and Animal Care Clinic in Marshall, Illinois prior to my current position at Farm and Family Veterinary Service. Before I started here, I had 7 years of experience as a Veterinary Assistant. Over the years, I have enjoyed learning how every veterinarian practices differently and each one has their own special trait, all with the same goal in mind...the wellbeing of your pet. Dr. Yeley goes above and beyond to meet you and your pets needs, while diligently educating herself on a daily basis to provide your loved ones with the best care possible. Thank you for supporting our practice and blessing us with the opportunity to know your family in return.

Christina is a Certified Veterinary Technician. She graduated from Lakeland College in 2011 with an Associates in Applied Science. Christina then went on to Veterinary Technician school at Parkland College in Champaign and graduated in 2013. Prior to joining Farm & Family, she has worked in clinics in both Lawrenceville and Casey, IL.
Some of her favorite hobbies include fishing and watching football. Her favorite team is the Denver Broncos, and she was very sad to see Peyton Manning retire. As far as fishing goes, any time the weather is clear and she has a day off, she will have a fishing pole in her hands!
Christina has a fur family of her own. She started off with one dog named Josephine, a beagle that is 6 years old who Christina adopted from Abbott labs in Wisconsin. In August of 2015, Christina adopted a kitten that was abandoned as a stray and has some special needs. Her name is Katniss. Finally, the family was not complete without one more! She adopted her newest kitten from a humane shelter and named her Primrose.
