Stephanie Rayner Viner
Veterinary Surgeon & Practice Owner
I became interested in becoming a vet from a very early age as I was always surrounded by animals as a child. My father owned a circus and so it was never a surprise to be shown a snake, a baboon or a tarantula! In addition to this, we had many more conventional pets and I quickly realised that what I wanted to do when I grew up was treat them. I graduated from Liverpool University in 2008 and have spent the last five years enjoying mixed practice near my home in North Wales. In the future I hope to specialise by pursuing a further qualification in a small animal discipline.
Currently at home I have eight cats, two dogs, three pythons, two goats, five geese and five hens, so quite a lot to be getting on with! When I'm not working I enjoy foreign travel and learning new languages (currently French), swimming, going to stand-up comedy and concerts, eating out and having fun with friends.
