Welcome Dr. Stone!
Dr. Stone's Biography:
"Becoming a veterinarian has always been a dream of mine growing up. In fact, I was so little that I told my mom I wanted to be a 'vegetarian' because I couldn't pronounce my t's correctly. I grew up in Antioch, IL, which almost makes me a Wisconsinite since my hometown is that close to Wisconsin. My undergraduate years were spent at the University of Wisconsin-Madison where I played the clarinet in the marching band. I then took 2 years off and went to Veterinary School at the University of Illinois Champaign-Urbana. However, I continue cheering for the Badgers, packers, and Brewers; like I said before, I grew up in the Wisconsin influence. My cat Midna, who is a long-hair, was born in the Madison, WI area. You may ask why I ended up staying in central Illinois, and that is because I fell in love with the clinic and the outstanding staff. In my free time, I like to go running, water related activities, and when it's snowing, I love to snowboard or just simply play in the snow. I also want to get more involved with golf, and Pekin seems like the perfect place for that!"
The entire team at Pekin Veterinary Clinic is so excited to have Dr. Stone on board with us, providing amazing care to the pets and people in the community!
