Steph
Steph
Veterinary Technician
Steph decided to join the world of veterinary medicine for one simple reason: she’s always adored pets, and she wants to do everything in her power to make sure they live the happiest, healthiest lives they possibly can. What better way for her to do that than by working hands-on to help pets feel better as a Veterinary Technician?

Originally from New York, Steph moved to Pennsylvania at a young age and has lived in this area ever since. She first joined the Community Animal Hospital team nearly two decades ago, and has learned everything she knows from the many talented doctors and Technicians she’s had the pleasure of working with over the years. Steph’s favorite aspects of being a Tech include working in surgery, helping senior pets, and making the clinic’s boarding visitors feel more comfortable.

At home, Steph has several pets of her own. She shares her life with Danny, a timid three-legged Podenco dog from the Dominican Republic; a Pit Bull named Lulu; and Toby the senior Bichon Frise. The animal portion of the family is rounded out by four cats: Josephine, Connor, Louis, and Archie.
