My name is Lacey Rios. I am 31 years old and have been in the veterinary field for 12 years. I started as a kennel assistant and worked my way up to a veterinary technician throughout my career. I have graduated from St. Petersburg College with a four-year degree in veterinary technology and I am working towards becoming a credentialed technician. I come from a small town full or horses and cattle. In my free time, I spend a lot of time with my horses, from, teaching younger children how to ride to running barrels at horse shows. I currently have 10 horses, a dog, and numerous cats. My passion for animals started at a young age and has grown more and more over the years. As veterinary medicine continues to grow so does my thirst for knowledge, passion, and helping provide the best medicine for your pet.
