Jacey grew up in Hurricane, Utah as the eldest of six siblings. She spent a lot of time camping, hunting, four-wheeling, and farming during her childhood, and animal care was simply a part of life. Jacey has always known that she would love caring for pets hands-on as a part of the veterinary world!
Jacey began her animal-care journey as a receptionist, and when a position opened up that allowed her to train to become a Veterinary Assistant, she jumped at the chance. She’s been serving animals in that capacity ever since! Jacey previously worked alongside Dr. Johnson at another clinic in the area—when Jacey and her family moved to Cedar City a few years ago, she was thrilled to join forces once again.
Medically, Jacey enjoys performing blood draws and especially likes the challenge of doing so on a small, wriggly patient. She’s also fond of surgery and anesthesia work. Above all, Jacey likes to meet pet owners here at the clinic and get to know them and their animal companions on a personal level.
When she’s not at work, Jacey loves to spend quality time with her family. She and her husband have two young boys, Tanner and Cooper, and also share their lives with a loveable white Labrador Retriever. The family enjoys spending time in the mountains whenever they can, and can often be found camping, riding four-wheelers, hunting, shooting, and off-roading.
