When Stephen made the decision to go back to school, his fiancé was the first to encourage him to look into veterinary medicine. She knew just how much he adored animals and found the medical field fascinating! As soon as Stephen toured the facilities of the college he was interested in, he knew that a career in veterinary medicine was just what he was looking for.

Stephen is a Minnesota native and obtained his Associate’s degree from Argosy University. He serves as a Veterinary Technician here at Golden Valley Animal Hospital, and has developed a special passion for anesthesia work.

When he’s not tending to pets’ needs here at the clinic, Stephen enjoys cooking, playing games, being outdoors, and spending time with his family. He lives with his wife, his two wonderful sons and daughter, and Siberian Husky, Mya.
