After moving to Wellington and under the mentorship of Drs Tracey and Wayne Jensen, I have learned the business side of a veterinary hospital and enjoy the unique challenges that it brings. My husband and I share our home with our labrador, Walker and a scaredy cat, Roada. We have recently become empty nesters and have taken up homebrewing as a hobby.

Hello! My name is Stacy W. I am a Certified Veterinary Technician born and raised in the San Francisco Bay Area.

I obtained my Associate of Applied Science Degree in Veterinary Technology from the Bel-Rea Institute in 2008 and spent 4 years as part of a high quality veterinary team specializing in Laboratory work, Radiology, and the care of hospitalized and ICU patients. I was fortunate enough to stumble upon the compassionate team at Wellington Veterinary Hospital in November 2012 after moving to Northern Colorado. I share my home and heart with my oldest friend Nick the Cockatiel, and beloved dogs Rusty, Charlie and my new diamond in the rough, Annie. I look forward to all there is to explore in Northern Colorado and growing professionally with the extraordinary team and family at Wellington Veterinary Hospital for many years to come.
