In 2003, Dr. Stephens established the Internal Medicine Department here at the Katonah-Bedford Veterinary Center where she remained a team member until 2012. In 2010-2011, Dr. Stephens served on the medical advisory board for the BrightHeart Veterinary Network. From 2012, Dr. Stephens established a successful Internal Medicine Practice in Newtown, Connecticut before relocating to New Mexico in 2015 where she headed the Internal Medicine Department at the Veterinary Emergency and Specialty Centers of New Mexico in Albuquerque, New Mexico for the past 4 years. Now she has returned to the East coast and rejoined the Katonah Bedford Veterinary Center’s Internal Medicine Department.
