Steph grew up in Hunua with a wide variety of animals which introduced her to a love of both companion animal and production animals. She graduated from Unitec in 2012 with a diploma in veterinary nursing and after working with companion animals for several years, moved into mixed practice in 2016. Steph originally joined the Paeroa practice as a technician in 2018 and after a stint at home with her little girl, is now at the Waihi clinic as a technician. Steph is currently also completing her degree in veterinary nursing.
Steph is currently on maternity leave.
