Paula and Ted Steen
Ted is our front desk tech and Paula is our practice manager. They have both been in the corporate world before, but decided to follow their hearts to work with animals. They have been part of the SFPC family for many years now. In their spare time they love watching Anime together and remembering their two Chihuahua's, “Brisco“ and “Dixie“ whom have both crossed over the Rainbow bridge. Paula says, “They may not be here in our life but they will always be in our hearts.“
Officially on staff since 2001 and unofficially since she could walk, Jordan has been a part of the SFPC family, helping her dad, Leslie Wegele, in many positions starting as a kennel tech, up to Front Desk Tech, and even Vet Tech, as well as many clinic projects. Since her dad is a vet and her mom grew up on a farm, Jordan has been helping and raising animals since she was little, always having a soft spot for all animals great and small. Jordan’s favorite part of her job is always meeting the animals and their people. “I love building relationships with owners and getting to know them instead of them being just another client; helping them to understand all aspects of care are what are great about this job.” Outside the clinic, Jordan is a graduate of Kansas State University and enjoys going to KSU Baseball games whenever possible (Go Cats!). When at home, she loves snuggling with her cats, “Buzz” and ``Bean`` while reading a good book.
Sara joined SFPC in 2020 when she moved from her hometown in southern NJ to the KC area. Originally thinking she wanted to be a veterinarian, she attended Purdue University where she received her Bachelors in Biology in 2019. It was in the summers between college when working for a local vet clinic where she found her true passion was nursing. ``It's so gratifying getting to watch an ill patient recover. Celebrating each improvement milestone with the owners is worth every moment of hard work.`` She is currently enrolled in Purdue's Veterinary Nursing Distance Learning Program and hopes to become a registered veterinary nurse upon graduation. In her free time, Sara enjoys exploring the KC area with her husband, AJ, serving at Christ Community Church KC, playing piano/singing, and reading mystery books.
Beginning in 2001 as a kennel tech, and now working part-time as one of our receptionists and vet assistant. Cassie has worked anywhere from just Saturdays to full-time through college, other jobs, and now is a mother. Cassie is big lover of animals and people! She got her degree in Elementary Education, but has continued to enjoy working here through all of life’s changes over the past 12 years. “I love the fun pets, friendly clients, great co-workers, and learning new things on a regular basis.” In addition to her love of animals, Cassie also loves to hike and backpack. She, along with her family, goes to the Colorado Rockies every year and has crossed the Grand Canyon 3 times! She is married to her amazing husband Ben and they have four children, Lizzy, Timothy, Abby and Daniel and her black lab “Watson”. “They are waiting the arrival of their 5th child this summer. Congratulations Cassie and Ben!”
