Large Animal Staff

Taylor Kersey, Large Animal Technician

Taylor was born in Oregon, where she was raised to love horses and rodeo. In 2013, she attended Central Arizona College and competed on the rodeo team in the Grand Canyon Region. She graduated with her degree in Agriculture Business and moved back to Oregon, but quickly grew to love veterinary medicine and equine rehabilitation while working alongside her long-time veterinarian. It wasn’t long after that, the cold and rainy weather pushed her to move back to Arizona full time in 2018 and continue to pursue a career in veterinary medicine with Jackpot. In her spare time, Taylor enjoys drinking Margaritas with her fellow Jackpot employee Brittany, roping with her wonderful neighbors and riding her growing herd of bays and greys.

Jeannette Felix, Equine Receptionist

Jeanette is a Tucson native and an animal lover at heart. She has 4 cattle dogs that would rather be around cows than people, one cat that acts more like a dog than a cat and 6 horses. If she’s not caring for animals at Jackpot, she’s probably out ranching and roping with her husband. Jeanette loves the variety of pets and owners she gets to interact with and we are so happy to have her as part of the Jackpot family.

Shayla Bristow, Large Animal Technician

Born and raised in Tombstone, Arizona, Shayla is a Junior at the University of Arizona majoring in Veterinary Science. She has plans of attending Veterinary School and hopes to open her own mobile practice some day. Shayla enjoys exercising, going on hikes with her dogs, horseback riding, and spending time with her friends and family.

Kileigh Setzler

Kileigh was born and raised in Gilbert, Arizona where she grew up with horses and livestock. She is a senior at the University of Arizona graduating in May 2022 with a BS in Veterinary Science and a Minor in Microbiology. She plans to attend veterinary school post-graduation and work primarily with equine and livestock.

In her spare time Kileigh enjoys playing volleyball, running, riding her horse, photography, and spending time with friends and family.

Cole Lowry

Cole was born and raised in Richmond, Virginia. He grew up performing in the East coast ISHS riding program learning how to ride and care for horses. He also found love for the smaller animals by having and caring for all different types of pets ranging from gerbils, fish, lizards, tortoises, bunnies, cats, dogs, and even exotic birds. He moved to Tucson, Arizona in 2016 where he now calls home. Currently he is enrolled at Pima Community College working to get his bachelor’s degree in Biology Science. When he is not working at the clinic or cleaning stalls at his local barn he likes to spend his free time with friends, family and his pets.
