Dr. Stepnik’s interest in Dermatology began during her final year of veterinary school and became stronger during her four years as a general practitioner at a multi-specialty and emergency referral hospital in Northern California.  As a general practitioner and emergency clinician, she saw many dermatologic diseases on a daily basis and realized that this discipline was her passion.

Dr. Stepnik is a native of Erin, Wisconsin and she is excited to return to the state, with her husband Dr. Matthew Stepnik, a veterinary surgeon also employed at Lakeshore Veterinary Specialists, and her two children, two dogs and two cats.  She enjoys running, biking and reading in her spare time.
