Stewart and Earl

Biography:

My very first job was at Stoney Creek Veterinary Hospital in 1987 as a veterinary assistant. A few years later, I attended Harcum College’s Veterinary Nursing Program and received my Associate in Animal Science degree. I’ve worked at several small animal hospitals over the years, including a cats-only practice and one where I handled most of the exotic pets, including birds, rodents, and reptiles. In 1999, I moved to Ocean Pines, Md., and started Steph’s Pet Sitting, which grew for more than 5 years. In 2004, I moved back to Pennsylvania, sold Steph’s Pet Sitting in Maryland, and re-started it here in Media.

In my free time, I enjoy going to concerts and dining in the great city of Philadelphia. A fun fact about me is I’m a self-taught drummer who enjoys listening to heavy metal music. I’m also a competitive pinball player and am currently ranked 5th in the Pennsylvania women’s division and 82nd in the world!

In Memoriam

 

Anna was the first employee I hired. We went to Ridley High School together and reconnected at our 25th reunion. She was the most caring person I’ve ever worked with. She truly loved every animal she took care of. Unfortunately, we lost her in January 2024 to a long battle with kidney disease. It’s been a huge loss to our company and to me personally. I’ll never forget Anna, and I know she is over the Rainbow Bridge looking for more animals to help.
