Head of Emergency Medicine
Stephanie Wolstenholme, VMD, grew up outside of Philadelphia in Doylestown, PA. She knew she wanted to be a vet since she was 5 years old (right after "olympic horseback rider" didn't pan out). She graduated from Penn State main campus with a Bachelor's in Animal Science and then went to University of Pennsylvania for veterinary school. Following this she did a one year rotating internship in small animals and exotics at the Animal Medical Center (AMC) in New York City and then stayed on there to complete a subsequent specialty internship in Emergency and Critical Care.
Dr. Wolstenholme has been practicing as an ER doctor for the past several years, initially going to a private specialty and referral practice in New Jersey and most recently having worked in the ER at the University of Pennsylvania's veterinary teaching hospital. She thrives on the (at times) hectic nature of the ER and enjoys the varied caseload it provides.
When not at work Dr. Wolstenholme enjoys spending time with her husband and friends, traveling, running, fostering kittens and is an avid gardener. She has a rescue pit bull (Olive), two one-eyed cats (Davey Jones and Capn Jack) and several reptiles.
