Our Animal Caregivers

Heaven Terry

Animal Caregiver

I've always had an unexplainable connection and love for animals. My mom always says that I never met an animal that didn't like me or vice versa. I've had animals around me my entire life. This is the first time I've worked in a veterinarian's office. I have worked in a boarding kennel in Phoenix for almost 2 years. I've primarily lived in Phoenix most of my life, but since my dad was in the army, I've also lived in Germany, Maryland and New York. I just recently moved to Prescott Valley. Growing up, my path took me towards the arts mostly. It wasn't until I was an adult that I realized that working with animals is my calling. I currently have 6 dogs, 2 cats and a snake. They are my babies! I can't wait to see what my future unfolds.

Betsy Nixon

Animal Caregiver

I am an Arizona native. I started working at Kachina in 2014. I have always been an animal lover since I was little. I grew up around all sorts of animals (horses, pigs, cows, goats, chickens, dogs, cats, rabbits, ferrets) I have 1 dog and 3 children. In my spare time I like to be outdoors mostly, fishing, hiking, being around family and friends, road trips.

Sharon Stout

Animal Caregiver

Hello! My name is Sharon and I have been an Animal Caregiver here at Kachina Animal Hospital since July 2016. I am originally from Phoenix, but I've lived in the Prescott area most of my life. My passion for animals began at an early age and it wasn't long before I knew I wanted to pursue a career in the veterinary field. One of my many future goals is to become a Certified Veterinary Technician. When I'm not working, I enjoy spending time outdoors with my Husky Mix, Shadow, and my Blue Heller Mix, Finn. I can't wait to see how my future unfolds with the Kachina family.

Stephanie Kennon

Animal Caregiver

I am an animal caregiver with Kachina Animal Hospital and I am loving every minute of it. It's the first animal hospital I have worked in, but I have previous kennel experience with working in a dog resort which taught me a tremendous amount. I have been a huge animal lover since I was a little girl. Being born in Missouri, and living across from a dairy farm, cows were my first love!! I have been raised here in Prescott since I was a toddler. I have two amazing dogs (one is named Bear he is an 8 year old aussie mix and my second dog is named Teddy. He is a 2 year old chow lab mix) I call them my babies/children. I also have two cats that are about 8 years old and are the biggest loves. My favorite part about my job is being able to look after other's pets when they can't. I've always had a special place in my heart for animals. And eventually realized that working with animals is where I wanted to be. I am currently attending school and hope to become a certified vet tech in the next few years or so. I look forward to seeing what the future holds for me at Kachina
