Dr. Matthew Lackey
Dr. Matthew Lackey is a native Memphian and a graduate of St. George’s University College of Veterinary Medicine, where he was inducted in to Phi Zeta Honor Society. Before veterinary school, Dr. Lackey worked as a veterinary technician, which confirmed his desire to become a veterinarian. He is a member of Christ the King Lutheran Church in East Memphis.
Dr. Lackey enjoys spending time with his family including his wife Laura and son Liam. In his spare time he can be found playing outside with Liam, doing yard work, or watching sports. Their dogs CJ, a rescue from the Caribbean, and Arya, a Rottweiler, bring a lot of joy to their family.
Dr. Mikki Ferguson
Dr. Mikki Ferguson is a born and raised Memphian and attended St. Benedict at Auburndale High School. After obtaining her bachelors degree in Biology from Mississippi State University, she completed her DVM at the University of Tennessee College of Veterinary Medicine, which leads to some varying allegiance during football season. Throughout college and vet school, Dr. Ferguson worked at GPAH both as a kennel attendant and a technician assistant, so she is already familiar with many of the current GPAH fur friends!
Dr. Ferguson is a founding member of Trinity Baptist Church in Cordova, and in her spare time, enjoys reading, music, crocheting, and spending time with friends and family. In addition to SEC football, she is a fan of the Memphis Grizzlies and the Chicago Blackhawks. She is thrilled to be back in her hometown and looks forward to meeting and serving all of the wonderful GPAH clients!
