Dr. Steve was born and raised just outside of New York City in Spring Valley. He developed his interest in becoming a veterinarian volunteering for the ASPCA and working for local veterinarians. He left NY after high school and attended College at Colorado State University where he received his BS in Animal Science. After graduation in 1986 he moved to Westchester County, NY where he worked 1 year as a veterinary technician. The experience there was a valuable part of his gaining admittance into CSU’s veterinary program. After completion of the veterinary program Dr. Steve ultimately moved to the Mount Snow region of southern Vermont where he owned the Deerfield Valley Veterinary Hospital for 10 years. It was not unusual for Dr. Steve to work on not only dogs and cats but also cattle, horses, deer, goats, and llamas. He then moved to Palm Beach County in 2006 and eventually took over All About Town in 2009.
Dr. Steve brings 21 years of experience to the house call practice and still really enjoys being a veterinarian. He lives in Hypoluxo with his cat Nerys and his dog Avalon. When not taking care of Palm Beaches pet population, Dr. Steve enjoys boating, scuba diving, bicycling, running, swing dancing, and can occasionally be seen in a local community theater production.
PRACTICE MANAGER / PERSONAL ASSISTANT
I was born in Aurora, Illinois, and graduated from Northern Illinois University with two degrees in Elementary and Special Education. I moved to South Florida in 1990 where I tutored elementary students and also opened my own graphic design business. Through a vast meeting of clients and based on my love for animals and animal rescue, I accepted a job working at Stetzer Veterinary Hospital in Coral Springs which I came to adore and worked my way up to Manager. During my ten years there, I learned all aspects of its day-to-day operations making constant practice decisions benefiting every department with the ultimate goal of satisfying our clientele.
Our hospital was eventually sold, but now to work alongside Dr. Steve gives me the perfect opportunity to continue what I love to do. I also provide additional services assisting in pet care, boarding, dog walking and pet sitting primarily in Coral Springs, Parkland, and Coconut Creek areas. Occasionally I can provide these services in the Boca Raton & Delray Beach areas as well.
I reside in Coral Springs with my husband, five cats, and six birds. When it comes to helping animals, I will do whatever it takes to make an animal comfortable and loved. I not only have a passion for this business but above all else the passion for both pets and their owners. My goal is to continue schooling and learn anything possible in the field of Veterinary Medicine and Pet Therapy. When not working, I enjoy gardening, especially with butterflies and orchids, photography, bicycling and flying in hot air balloon competitions festivals with my family.
