Name: Dr. Stephanie Carle

Where do you work? Abilene Zoo

What’s your job title/what do you do? Staff Veterinarian - I am the only vet so I care for all the animals.

Where are you from? St. Louis, MO

If you’re not from Abilene, how long have you lived in the area? Over 6 years

What is your favorite thing about living in the Big Country? I love how everyone is so friendly.

What do you do in your free time? Hang out with my Little Sis from Big Brothers Big Sisters or work with my dogs. What organizations (non-profit) in town do you choose to support and why? If you serve on any boards in the community or participate in any other groups? If so, what do you enjoy about your participation? I have participated in Big Brothers Big Sisters for 3.5 years. I have a little sister who just so happens to want to be a veterinarian. We hang out and do all kinds of fun things together. I enjoy getting to hang out with her and encourage her as she grows. It has been super cool to watch her mature over the past several years. Our favorite things to do would be getting snow cones and going to the zoo. FYI - BBBS always needs more BIGS!

What’s your favorite place to travel to and why? South Africa has been my favorite place so far. So many amazing animals and the hospitality from South Africans cannot be beat. Amazing experience - cannot wait to go back! Share a fun fact about yourself other AYP Members might not know! Dog training is my outlet. I love my German Shepherds, Kaia and Enzo. Both have been through numerous classes with VanBuren K-9 Academy. Kaia is a working dog and currently training for protection and obedience. She is a lot to handle but tons of fun!
