Customer Experience Host
Stacey is our Customer Experience Host at Pickles. He has been in the Veterinary industry for 10+ years, and his passion is giving pets and their parents the best possible experience as soon as they walk through the door. At home, Stacey and his husband have three rescue Sphynx cats – Seraphina, Severus, and Sepphira – and caring for them fills most of their time. When the occasion arises, however, he enjoys attending concerts and going to the theatre, especially to see musicals. You'll find him warmly greeting you at the front of house as soon as you enter Pickles.
Stacey qualified as a veterinary nurse in 2017 in Portugal and moved to the UK in 2018 Staceys' career as a nurse in the UK started in Tunbridge Wells in 2018.
