About us

Our team is here to help.

Dr. Jennifer Mathews

Owner & Veterinarian

Dr. Jennifer Mathews graduated in 1997 from Oklahoma State University College of Veterinary Medicine and opened a practice in Tulsa which she owned for thirteen years. A silent partner in Southpark (now PAWS) since 1998, she came on board full time in 2015 as practice manager and CFO, then purchased PAWS outright in 2018.

Dr. Mathews is a lifelong animal lover who believes our pets help us tap into the best part of ourselves—the place in our heart that creates unconditional love.

Aside from cuddling puppies and kittens, her favorite part of owning PAWS is seeing its employees grow and discover their incredible potential. She is literally surrounded by compassionate, dedicated rockstars, and feels unbelievably blessed to be among them.

Dr. Mathews has three children, almost grown, and is delighted to have recently married her husband and best friend, Billy Stacey. They share a love for traveling, kayaking, nature walks, movies, and antique malls. Billy has a knack for renovating houses (they’ve done two in the last two years) and they can’t wait to start on their current home. They’re both football fans, Oklahoma State for her and Arkansas for him, and hope to attend more games in the next few years.

Their furkid family includes Scratchy—an orange tabby named by her oldest child—a rescue Terrier named Lacey, and a thirty-two year-old Paint gelding named Luke. Their foster dog, Dolly, recently found her furever home (hooray!), but they still get to babysit sometimes. Their beloved Lab, Pete, recently left a big, furry hole in their hearts when he crossed the Rainbow Bridge. He was A Very Good Boy and they miss him very much.

Since Dr. Mathews took over, PAWS has undertaken numerous improvements designed to help clients and their furbabies enjoy a more relaxed, gentle, and less stressful visit. From monthly payment plans (ease of budgeting) to digital X-ray (fast and accurate) to newly-remodeled lobby and exam rooms (non-skid floor, couches in rooms, fold up exam tables), Dr. Mathews planned each move with patient and client comfort in mind. She’s always up for new ideas and loves to hear from clients.

‘To be able to be there for a client that has to make life-altering decisions, or to help a patient that is in pain, is the reason I do what I do. There isn’t a person I work with that does not feel the same way. I truly am blessed with the best job in the world.’
