Looking for Stephannie as a locum tenens veterinarian?

Dr. Stephannie Tallent has worked as a small animal veterinarian in the South Bay and nearby areas of Los Angeles and Orange County since graduation from vet school.

She received her doctor of veterinary medicine degree from Texas A&M in 1999, a B.S. in Zoology from the University of Texas Austin in 1995, and a B.S. in English Literature from the United States Military Academy at West Point in 1989.

She served in the Army for 4 years as a Military Intelligence officer after graduating from West Point, primarily in Germany but including deployment for Desert Storm with the 1st Armored Division.

Born in the Long Beach area, she is one of those rare people–a California native.  She moved back to California after graduating from vet school, wanting to live near the beach again.

She and her husband Dave, a high school Physics teacher, have 3 cats (Meg, Obi, and Cali) and one dog, an English Cocker Spaniel named Rigel.
