Hello, my name is Stephanie. I graduated with my associates degree in veterinary medicine in 2010. I attended the Vet Tech Institute less than a year after graduating high school. Most of my life has been dedicated to veterinary medicine and continuously learning about the health and well being of animals and the people who love them. I started my career in general practice.. shortly after I started working in animal welfare at a local shelter.. then moved to another animal rescue organization dedicated to helping rehabilitate wildlife. I found my true passion in emergency and critical care medicine about 6 years ago. I worked overnight in a critical care unit in a large volume hospital for 6 years and now finally am working daylight hours, still in emergency and critical care!
