Staci started working as a Certified Veterinary Technician at Valley Verde Veterinarians in January 2018. She was born and raised in Tucson, where she still lives. She graduated as a Certified Veterinary Technician from Pima Medical Institute in 2015 and, after working at few Tucson animal clinics, found her way down to Green Valley and into our Valley Verde Veterinarians family. Staci always had an interest in veterinary medicine, and at one time thought about becoming a veterinarian. However, after starting her education at Pima and gaining some work experience, she decided that being a veterinary technician was were her heart was at. She loves the active role she experiences in each patient’s treatment and the technical skills needed to do her job well. In her time away from the office, she spends time with her son, Diego; her Rottweiler, Leia; and her crested gecko, AJay. When she can find a free moment she also enjoys crochet.
