Stephanie, originally from Los Angeles, knew at a young age her heart was set on working with animals, a passion that ignited by cinematic classics such as The Lion King and 101 Dalmatians. Although her parents initially had reservations about having pets, Stephanie’s relentless determination, coupled with persistent pleas, eventually led them to granting her the companionship of a rabbit, birds, and a dog.

Her academic pursuits took her to the University of California, San Diego, where she pursued her undergraduate studies. Currently, Stephanie is fulfilling her lifelong dream of becoming a veterinarian at Michigan State University College of Veterinary Medicine, with an anticipated graduation date in 2024.

Stephanie’s passion is for feline medicine, and she aspires to enhance this field while placing a special emphasis on nurturing the client-veterinarian relationship throughout her career. Her primary areas of interest encompass feline medicine, shelter medicine, and surgical procedures.

When Stephanie is not immersed in her veterinary studies and pursuits, she takes pleasure in unwinding with a good book, especially those of the mystery and horror genres. She also enjoys the art of wine tasting and cherishes moments spent with her five domestic short-haired feline cats: Mocha, Teluse, Hazelnut, Luffy, and Tony Stark.
