Dr. Stephanie Wilkinson was born and raised on the small Island of Bermuda. She has been an avid equestrian since the age of 6, competing in the showjumping ring in Bermuda, Canada, Europe and the United States. At the age of 18, she moved to Canada to complete her B.S. Honors degree in Bio-Medical Science from the University of Guelph. She went on to earn her Doctorate of Veterinary Medicine from the Ontario Veterinary College, graduating at the top of her class and finally fulfilling her childhood dream of becoming a veterinarian.
Steph has an interest in both equine and small animal medicine. She hopes to gain a wealth of knowledge and enhance her veterinary skills in all facets of equine and small animal practice. As she has a keen interest in sport horse medicine and lameness, she particularly hopes to strengthen her ultrasound and lameness diagnostic skills during her Internship with the Piedmont Equine Practice.
She was very excited to move to this area as she absolutely loves the rural landscape. Her horse, Esquire, even made the journey with her. Whenever time permits, she enjoys traveling back to her beautiful Island home to visit family and friends. She is very enthusiastic about spending an entire year learning from the wonderful people at Piedmont Equine! After completing the Internship, she plans to begin competitively riding again.
