Team Leader


Stacey is our Team Leader and has been working at Riverton Rossmoyne Vet since 2017. She graduated from Polytechnic West as a vet nurse in 2004 and subsequently went on to do courses in marketing and business management. Ever since she was a little girl, she knew she wanted to work with animals. Stacey has been working in the veterinary industry for almost 20 years now, and she still loves it!

Stacey's favourite thing about being a vet nurse is the stories her clients share about the family and the pets and what they get up to! She has always lived in Perth and now resides in the hills of Roleystone on half an acre with two dogs, Violet the Labrador and Mickey the Maremma Sheepdog, three hens and a husband with four sons, Noah, Will, Nathaniel and Theo.

Taylor has also completed her Certificate III in Business and Certificate IV in Computer Networking.

Before her vet nursing career began, Taylor was an apprentice chef, but she decided that wasn’t for her; she took the path of studying to do what she really loved, which is cuddling puppies and kittens, of course!

In her spare time Taylor enjoys playing softball, boxing, building Lego with her stepson and narrating the life of her cat with her partner.
