As our Hospital Manager since 2016, Stephanie lives to make everyone’s lives easier, from our clients to our staff. Stephanie has worked with animals and the people who love them since she was a teenager. In an effort to improve the human-animal bond, Stephanie is a certified Fear Free Professional and working towards her Human Animal Bond Certification. Stephanie loves all pets, but she has a soft spot when special need pets come to visit (in honor of her one-eyed Chihuahua Bug!). In her free time, Stephanie enjoys outings with her husband Al and their three children, going to the beach, and spending time with her fur family: Fiona, Slinky, Bug, Joey, and Carrot. We are so lucky to have Stephanie as our team leader!
