    Stephanie Michaud

    Stephanie Michaud grew up in beautiful Belmont, NH. She graduated from Belmont High School in 2002 and began working various jobs. Having grown up with many pets and the love of animals, Stephanie decided to attend a veterinary technician program in Stratham, NH. This program suited her well and she excelled in her classes. The final aspect of her schooling was an internship here at VCA Lakes Region Veterinary Hospital and VCA Laconia Animal Hospital. Known back then as "Glitter Girl" due to her glittery appearance and vibrant attitude, Steph was an immediate great fit with our staff, clients, and especially our patients. We were pleased to keep Steph on as a permanent member of our staff. In 2008, she passed her veterinary technician board exam and became an officially certified veterinary technician (CVT) in the state of New Hampshire. Steph is now our Head Technician at VCA Laconia Animal Hospital. Though she has a special affection for black cats, she is sure to make every pet feel comfortable in our hospital. Her friendly nature and expansive knowledge make her a valuable member of our team. Stephanie feels fortunate to be able to reside here in the Lakes Region where she enjoys recreation on the lake in the summers, and snowmobiling in the winters.
