Dr. Stefan has been practicing veterinary medicine since 2010. She graduated from Ross University School of Veterinary Medicine after completing her clinical year at NC State University in Raleigh. After graduating, she spent a year in Seattle completing an internship in an exotic pet practice where she learned all about treating and caring for non-traditional pets including birds and reptiles. Dr. Stefan joined the VCA Centre Park family in January 2019.
Dr. Stefan is originally from Ohio, but moved to Baltimore in 2011 and fell in love with Maryland. She now lives in Columbia with her husband, step son, two cats, and a dog.
"I think one of the most important jobs of a veterinarian is teaching people how to care for their pets and keep them healthy. I love sharing knowledge with my patient's family members, helping them to learn not just what to do, but why I recommend a particular treatment or therapy. Especially when dealing with exotic pets, good health starts with having my pet parents know as much as possible about the specific nutrition, habitat, and training recommended. It all starts at home."
