Dr. Erica Stephenson, Managing DVM

Dr. Stephenson earned her doctorate of veterinary medicine degree from Ross University in 2012. Dr. Stephenson is a world traveler and has experienced veterinary medicine and surgery in countries across the world. As a Virginia native, she is excited to return to the loving and caring communities it provides. Family ties in the area have afforded her the opportunity to become involved in the community, including giving a "introductory to veterinary care workshop" for the Girl Scouts.

Prior to joining Massanutten Animal Clinic, Dr. Stephenson was practicing small animal medicine in South Carolina where she served as President of the Greater Greenville Veterinary Medical Association. Joining her in Virginia is her rescue dog, Jesse, and a three-legged tabby cat, Franny.
