Dr. Stephanie Byrne grew up in a military family and has called many places home. She has lived along the Pacific Coast, Nevada, Missouri, Virginia and Florida. Dr. Byrne completed her undergraduate degree at University of California, Berkeley.
Then, she started her medical oncology residency at the Royal Veterinary College in the United Kingdom in 2014, which she completed in July 2017. During her residency, she also completed a Masters of Veterinary Medicine degree.
Dr. Byrne knew from an early age that veterinary medicine was a passion for her, based on her experiences in shadowing her family veterinarian at his clinic. Once in veterinary school the choice to pursue an Oncology specialty was an easy decision, as this opened a way for her to combine her love of clinical pathology with the reward of interacting with and treating patients. Her special interests lie in hematopoietic and histolytic malignancies, clinical trials work, and personalized therapies for patients that emphasize quality of life.
