Dr. Jennifer Godman is a North Carolina native. She is a graduate of North Carolina State University and the University of Glasgow School of Veterinary Medicine. Following vet school, Dr. Godman completed a one-year hospital internship with Peterson & Smith Equine Hospital and a six-month Equine Internal Medicine Fellowship with Hagyard Equine Medical Institute in Lexington, Kentucky.

Following her residency, she spent time in Florida in private practice and completed the Equine Spinal Medical Manipulation (Chiropractor) course before returning home to join the Hassinger Equine Sports Medicine & Rehabilitation team. She is skilled in lameness, surgery to include post-op care, internal medicine, ultrasound, radiology, and emergency care.
