Veterinary Technician

Stephanie is originally from Ocala, Florida, and she’s always had a deep passion for all pets, furry or scaly! She enjoys being a part of helping them heal and loves seeing their owners’ smiling faces as they enter the hospital. Outside of work, she enjoys adventurous activities like hiking and traveling, but also loves snuggling up with her dog and three cats binge watching Netflix.



Hi, my name is Lexi and I’m one of the technicians at Marion Veterinary Hospital. I have been in the veterinary field for almost 7 years now and I love every second of it. I’m a huge fan of cats (especially the orange ones), but love the pups just as much!
