Stephanie joined the Mountain Ridge Animal Hospital Team in October of 2021. She graduated from Iowa State University- College of Veterinary Medicine is 2010. She is originally from Western Nebraska. Stephanie grew up on a farm there where she was always around cats, dogs, horses, and cattle. She remembers the day that she decided she wanted to become a veterinarian very well. She got the chance to help her local veterinarian bandage a draft horse's hoof. She was only 12 years old at the time, but knew after this experience that she was meant to become a Veterinarian, to help animals, just like that! Stephanie has a dog of her own, named Maebe. Maebe is a sweet, old, geriatric dog now. Some of Stephanie's hobbies include cooking and baking. (She is known to bring us delicious treats at work!).
