Bergen is a veterinary assistant at Petersen Pet Hospital. Bergen grew up in a small town called Keota and the people in her community always knew her as the goofy girl with a contagious smile and a genuine love for animals. Bergen graduated from high school there in 2019. After graduating high school, she enrolled in the Humane Officer Training Program at Kirkwood Community College and moved to Cedar Rapids. Bergen decided she would like to stay in the Cedar Rapids area and further her career, which is what lead her to Petersen Pet Hospital.

At a young age, Bergen’s love for animals developed and she always knew she would have a career that involved caring for animals. When Bergen was 16, she began working at a local animal shelter, and she has worked with animals ever since. Bergen also often fosters animals in need. So far has been a temporary home to 58 cats/kittens and 15 dogs. Three of her pets are “foster fails”. Bergen currently shares her home with quite the handful of pets and spends a lot of her time with them then when she is not at work. Bergen also enjoys spending time with family, baking, fishing and going to concerts.
