Stephanie started working for Banfield in August of 2014. She has wanted to work with animals from a young age and as a small child, would go to the hospital with her mom, who was a vet tech. Stephanie would help walk the dogs, feed the animals and even watch surgical procedures through the observation window. She vividly remembers watching the doctor perform a hind leg amputation and was fascinated by it. She knew from those moments that this is what she was going to do in life. Stephanie loves animals deeply and wants nothing more than to be there for them. She wants to make sure they heal and strives to help keep them healthy. She wants to protect pets from preventable diseases, be their voice and advocate for their best health.
