He graduated from Colorado State University earning his doctorate degree in veterinary medicine in 2006. After veterinary school, Dr. Stefanoff completed an internship at a very busy referral and emergency animal hospital in Mesa Arizona.

Dr. Rebecca Y. Amesbury was born and raised in the agricultural community of Gilroy, California (known as the Garlic Capital of the World). She always planned on being a veterinarian when she grew up. She worked at veterinary clinics in Gilroy and Hollister, CA after high school and her appreciation for a variety of animals was enhanced by the patients themselves and co-workers.
Dr. Amesbury graduated from Utah State University with a Bachelor's of Arts degree in Bio-Veterinary Science (with minors in biology, chemistry and Spanish). She spent 18 months in Santiago, Chile as an LDS missionary before attending Washington State University College of Veterinary Medicine. While attending veterinary school, she worked as a small animal surgery on-call technician. She also worked in a research laboratory, dealing with monoclonal antibodies and Johne's Disease. She graduated with her doctorate in 2007, and spent 4 years practicing veterinary medicine at a busy five-doctor small animal practice in Spokane, Washington. Preventative medicine, internal medicine and soft tissue surgery skills were some of her areas of emphasis.
Dr. Amesbury, her husband (Brian), sons (Porter, Preston, & Thatcher), daughter (Cambria), and their Sphynx cat, Maynard, relocated to Utah in September of 2011. They enjoy nature, music, literature, and spending time with family and friends. Dr. Amesbury enjoys all types of animals, although she has focused her medical practice on dogs and cats.
Dr. Hope Teyler was raised in the small town of Alamosa, Colorado. She decided in the 8th grade that she wanted to be a veterinarian, and never wavered from that course. As a senior in high school she was awarded Colorado State University's Vet Start Scholarship which allowed her to be admitted to veterinary school after completing 3 years of undergraduate work at Colorado State.
Dr. Teyler earned her doctorate degree from CSU in 2004. After veterinary school she practiced outside Palm Springs, CA for 3 years before relocating to a practice in Park City, UT.

Dr. Vanessa Davis grew up all over the country in Maryland, Oklahoma, and Oregon. Her pathway to veterinary medicine began with her love of all animals, but especially horses, and she has spent many happy hours on horseback. After living for many years in the rainy Pacific Northwest, she relocated to Utah in 2017 to enjoy sunshine, snow, and four seasons.
Dr. Davis attended Brigham Young University and earned a bachelor’s degree in Animal and Veterinary Science. She attended veterinary school at Oregon State University and graduated with her Doctorate of Veterinary Medicine in 2009. While at veterinary school, she worked in a research lab studying NMDA receptors in the brain, and their role in memory and aging. Following graduation, Dr. Davis spent a year in a busy mixed animal practice treating dogs and cats, then driving all over the countryside to treat farm animals. She spent the next seven years in small animal general and emergency practice. Her areas of special interest are animal behavior, internal medicine, and soft tissue surgery. A low-stress, positive experience is her goal for each patient and client she sees in the clinic.
When not practicing veterinary medicine, Dr. Davis spends time with her husband (Keith), and three children (Kaitlyn, Gavin, and Trenton). She enjoys running, camping, riding bikes, reading, hiking, and baking. She also loves her fur babies- 2 cats named Oreo and Coal.
