Jana Wiley grew up in Indianapolis, graduating from IU where she met her husband, Tim. They raised their 3 children in Zionsville and have enjoyed watching them each find their own special journey with work. Jana and Tim have always had a dog in our home to cuddle, walk, love and spoil…right now, his name is Hank. Or Hankster Prankster. While Jana loves being with family & friends, cooking, reading & exercising – her favorite place until recently was spent horseback riding with her horse, Hunter. She has enjoyed different jobs through the years in sales, youth development at Junior Achievement and the local Chamber of Commerce. But it has been a real joy to work along side her daughter (Dr. Wiley) and the amazing team at IPVH, as they treat and care for the visiting clients and furry families of Indy Paws. Hope to meet you soon!
