Dr. Catherine Stevenson grew up in Dover, Massachusetts. She decided to be a veterinarian upon completing high school, because it combined her two greatest passions--animals and science! She started out volunteering as an assistant with a small animal cardiologist, prior to completing her pre-veterinary studies in Boston. She obtained VMD degree from the University of Pennsylvania. After four years in Philadelphia, she moved to California to complete a one-year rotating internship at VCA San Francisco Veterinary Specialists, dividing her time between the emergency and specialty services. Currently, she lives in New York with her husband, George, and her two mischievous black and white cats, Michu and Mina. She has been an avid runner since high school; she also enjoys exploring NYC, photography, music, traveling and being outdoors as much as possible.
