Education: Kirkwood Community College

Stacy is a Registered Veterinary Technician here at Petersen Pet Hospital. She always has a positive attitude and is ready to help an animal whenever she can. In the future, Stacy hopes to earn a technician specialty in an area such as dentistry or anesthesia.

Stacy spent the early years of her life living in Marion, Iowa until 2004 when her family moved to Moore, Oklahoma. She continued to live in Oklahoma until after graduating high school in 2012. Despite living in OK for eight years, Iowa had always felt more like home to her so she decided to apply to Kirkwood and began school in Spring of 2013.  Although Stacy had originally went to Kirkwood for Theatre, she felt she wanted to have a more fulfilling career. Stacy has always had a huge love for animals so in the summer of 2014 she decided to join the Veterinary Technician program at Kirkwood. She graduated May 14, 2016 and became a registered Veterinary Technician that Fall. In the summer of 2017 she received her Fear Free Certification. This certification means that she has been educated in the ways of making the entire process of taking your pet to the veterinary office much less stressful and fearful.

Stacy currently lives in Marion with her husband, Drew, and their Great Pyrenees/Anatolian Shepherd mix, Lady Jane. Lady Jane is very loved and spends most of her time sleeping around their house. Stacy also has another dog back in Oklahoma named Abby. Abby is a German Shepherd/ Golden Retriever mix that has a special place in Stacy’s heart since she was her very first dog.

In her spare time, Stacy enjoys watching movies, listening to Taylor Swift, baking, playing video games, and spending time with her family and friends.
