Brinn was born and raised in Indianapolis, IN. She went to Hanover College for undergrad and moved to Knoxville, TN for vet school (UTCVM Class of 2016) after working in Life Insurance saving up money. She wanted to be a vet since the second grade and her ultimate goal is to become a zoo vet. Three summers ago, Stephanie was lucky enough to travel to South Africa with the SYMCO program and had the time of her life! She hopes to be able to go back one day. During her clinical year at UTCVM, she spent 6 weeks completing an externship at the Detroit Zoo, which solidified her desire to become a zoo vet. She did not have many hobbies while in vet school, (who has time for those?! ha!) but loves to read books, be outside, travel, and spend time with her wonderful family. Brinn is new to Colorado and looking forward to experiencing all this wonderful place has to offer!
