Dr. Isabella Stepanovic was born and raised in a small town just outside of Cleveland, Ohio. She decided to leave the cold weather and attended The University of Arizona in Tucson for her undergraduate studies where she completed a Bachelor of Science degree in Veterinary Sciences. She then moved back to Ohio, where she earned her Doctor of Veterinary Medicine degree from The Ohio State University, graduating summa cum laude. During veterinary school, she served as an ambassador for the college and helped interview prospective veterinary candidates. Before accepting a full-time position at Nashville Veterinary Specialists as an emergency doctor, she completed a 1-year small animal medicine and surgery rotating internship at NVS.
During her free time, Dr. Stepanovic enjoys spending time with her fiancé, Michael (who is also a veterinarian), and her standard Goldendoodle, Monkey. Her particular interests include watching Ohio State football, traveling to new cities, and spending quality time with friends and family.
