Stephanie Bloom-Cotto, CVT, CCRP

Stephanie graduated from the Vet Tech Institute in Pittsburgh, PA in 2008. She developed an interest in neurology and rehabilitation when her corgi had to have back surgery (hemilaminectomy) in 2013. She then spent a year working in the neurology department at Pittsburgh Veterinary Specialty & Emergency Center (PVSEC) in Pittsburgh where she got to perform physical rehab on patients. 

Stephanie moved to Illinois in 2015 and has been part of the Wheatland family ever since. In 2019, she was rehab certified through the University of Tennessee and is now beginning the Canine Manual Therapy Certification Course through the University of Tennessee.
