Originally from the Far North Queensland Australia, Stephanie decided to make the move and fulfil her dream of working in the UK in 2020. She joined the Vale in August 2020 and hasnt looked back since. Graduating in 2011 from James Cook University, Stephanie started off in mixed practice where she eventually found her love for small animal surgery. In 2016 after rigorous examinations she became a member of the Australian and New Zealand College of Veterinary Surgeons, which has given her the ability to offer clients more surgical options in general practice. Since then she has found a great interest in ultrasound and endeavours further study in this field.

Whilst she is not being a Vet Stephanie loves being outdoors either the countryside or seaside. She also enjoys cooking for friends, tasting new foods, travelling, hiking and exploring new places.
