In the future she would love to be involved in a rescue organization and eventually become an Animal Cop! She is very passionate about animal rescue and even assisted in rescuing pets for Hurricane Katrina victims.
Stephanie is known for coming in on her days off to assist our doctors in emergency surgeries and can often be found singing to the hospitalized patients to help soothe them during their stay. Stephanie loves taking her four-legged son, Carlos, for hikes in the woods and spending time playing with her two kitties, Mike Tyson and Stubs.

She is known for her extensive medical knowledge and loves to take the time to educate coworkers and clients. She is the clinics biggest Catvocate (Cat advocate) and always goes the extra mile to ensure that kitties have a less stressful visit.
Kayla Van Dillen, Veterinary Technician
Kayla is a veterinary technician who joined the Carter Pet Hospital team in 2015 and shortly after graduated from the Brown Mackie Veterinary Technician program. She loves animals and is always growing in her knowledge of Veterinary medicine to help care for them.
Kayla’s favorite part of Veterinary medicine is doing all of the “gross” jobs that most other people would never want to do! These jobs normally include things that smell bad so we are thankful for her willingness to take care of it! She also has special interest in Australian Shepherds and in animal behavior.
She has been around animals her whole life. Raised on a farm, she grew up riding horses and still loves to ride horses to this day. Kayla has a cat named Alice (aka Momma Kitty) and a cockatiel named Ernie Bird. She also has a fur baby named “Olive” who is her side kick. They are always going on adventures together, hiking, swimming, and hanging with friends. You will rarely find one without the other.

Stephanie Clemons, Veterinary Assistant
Stephanie Clemons went to Midwest Institute for medical assistants and received a Veterinary Assistant degree. She has been working at Carter Pet Hospital since 2008. Prior to working in the veterinary field, she was in child care for 18 years! We think this is where she gained her unprecedented level of patience.

She enjoys movies, scrapbooking, and singing in the church choir in her free time. Some of Stephanie’s favorite things are animals, children, and roller coasters. She hopes to one day go sky diving and own a pet skunk, which she would name Daisy.
