Stacy

Stacy

Veterinary Technician

 

I am a little obsessed with caring for animals which means I have had many “foster fails” that have become a part of my fur family. I knew a very long time ago that I wanted to be in the medical field and chose the animal side of medicine. Boy did I make the right choice. I cannot imagine doing anything else.

I was born and raised in South Florida and have moved quite a few times in my life. Florida, Europe, Georgia and back to Florida. When I found this little town of Trenton in 2012, I fell in love. I joined the Trenton Animal Hospital family soon after. Working with such compassionate co-workers, made me believe that I found “my place”. Our clients and their fur babies have been amazing over the years and I know that it will only get better.
