Veterinary Assistant
Jackson has always felt a connection to the earth’s creatures, even when he was a little boy. As he grew a bit older, his interests in science and medicine started to grow. For him, one career path just seemed to make sense: veterinary medicine. Jackson is continuing to follow his dream, and now helps pets and animal parents as a Veterinary Assistant with the Cedar Veterinary Clinic family!

Jackson is originally from Vernal, Utah, where he began working at a veterinary clinic during his high-school years. Next, he moved to Cedar City for college, studying pre-veterinary medicine at Southern Utah University. It wasn’t long before Jackson signed on here at Cedar Veterinary Clinic to supplement his studies with real-world experience in the field. He couldn’t be happier with his choice! He’s been a part of the clinic team since January of 2020 and looks forward to expanding his knowledge and experience before heading off to veterinary school in the future.

When time permits between work and school, Jackson enjoys going hiking in the great outdoors and spending time with friends.
Veterinary Assistant
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.

    Heather is absolutely fantastic! My lab (Hope) was very sick with a uterine infection which was killing her this past winter. Hope's 8 years old (considered too old by some to risk operating on). However, Heather immediately recommended operating to save Hope's life. There was NO hesitation and she took care of Hope that very day! Heather and staff stayed late that evening to look after Hope's needs. Knowing how worried I was about my girl, Heather contacted me to let me know how Hope was doing. My pup has since recovered and is like a new dog - rejuvenated, happy and healthy! I can't say enough good about the skill, dedication and compassion of this clinic and all their staff! Thank you for your hard work and determination!
