Stephanie
Practice Manager

Stephanie grew up with numerous pets and, like many little girls, wanted to work in the veterinary field when she grew up. While still in high school, she started working with veterinarians as a kennel assistant and, throughout the years, held the positions of vet assistant, receptionist, practice manager, and human resource director.

As an adult, she decided to return to college and, in 2012, earned a Bachelor of Business Administration with a concentration in accounting from Davenport University. In 2017, she went on to obtain a Master of Business Administration with a concentration in Human Resource Management.

Stephanie and Dr. Coll initially worked together at the beginning of both of their careers and in May of 2019, Stephanie joined the team at Chicago Drive Veterinary Clinic as the Practice Manager.

On a personal note, Stephanie and her husband, John, have three sons and are pet parents to a Labrador Retriever and numerous Dalmatians. In her spare time, Stephanie enjoys spending time with her friends, family, and dogs, spending time in the pool, bonfires, watching movies, doing crafts, and working on the remodel of her home.

Today, Kristie and her family currently have Skye, an active Border Collie; Ruger, a mixed breed; and Annie, who has made it through all the craziness!

Meeting different types of pets and people makes her day!

anna
Anna

Groomer

Anna is our professional pet groomer here at Chicago Drive. She graduated from the Paragon School of Pet Grooming in 2013. Shortly after that, she started grooming here one day a week, and now she has the privilege of grooming Monday through Thursday every week. On Fridays, she instructs students at the Paragon School of Pet Grooming. Anna loves grooming in the veterinary environment because she learns a lot from the medical side of things. She really enjoys learning and strives to constantly continue her education by taking classes and seminars, going to grooming shows, and learning from other groomers.

Anna and her husband, Devon, have been married since 2014. They have two dogs, a Standard Poodle named Timo, and Twinkie, a Jack Russell mix. Anna and her husband love to travel and spend time at their grandparents’ cottages during the summer, where she loves to fish and spend time on the boat. In her spare time, Anna loves hanging out with friends, playing board games, card games, and video games, and watching movies. She is also a big foodie and loves trying new things. Christmas is her favorite time of year because her family has many fun traditions that make it truly special.

Anna loves making dogs look and feel great, but the most important thing about her job is being an advocate for your pet. She sees most of her clients more often than their veterinarians do, so it’s her responsibility to observe changes in your pet from visit to visit and be their voice if something is out of the ordinary. Anna takes great care in what she does and hopes to see you and your pet walk through her door soon!
