Stephanie’s love for animals began at an early age. When she was a young girl, she would spend countless hours caring for and playing with the many different animals on her uncle’s hobby farm. Her devotion to these four legged companions became her calling and grew into a lifelong dedication to helping animals. Her combined interest in science and curiosity about how things work led her into the veterinary technician profession. Becoming a registered veterinary technician allowed her to combine and expand her passions and she graduated from College Boreal’s Veterinary Technician program in 2004. She wasn’t done there, her quest for knowledge drove her to continue with her education and in 2006 she obtained the Canadian Veterinary Dental Technician certificate. She loves helping to keep your pets looking picture perfect!! She has been working in the field since graduating and is a welcome addition to the Barrydowne family.
Stephanie shares her home with her wonderful husband and her four legged baby named Gracey. She adopted Gracey from the SPCA as a pup and their bond has grown stronger every day. Gracey is a very young 10 year old American Staffordshire Terrier and like her mother, an excellent student!! She has graduated from many levels of obedience and agility training and completed the Canine Good Neighbour Test. Stephanie is avid about spending time outdoors and enjoys nurturing her vegetable and flower gardens.
