Kayla Stomack, DVM


Kayla Stomack grew up in a small town in the Thumb of Michigan. She grew up with the plans of coming back to her hometown to practice dairy medicine. However, after starting her undergraduate studies at Michigan State University she started to develop of love of conservation medicine as she started out as a docent at Potter Park Zoo in Lansing Michigan. Over the remainder of undergrad and into veterinary school she found opportunities to travel to South Africa, India and then Thailand where she volunteered with elephants. After graduating from vet school her plans were far from a dairy practice as she started working at a 24-hour small animal emergency practice along with part-time at-home hospice and euthanasia practice. Her love of wildlife never ceased as she continued volunteering at the zoo and sought further training in zoo and wildlife medicine. When Kayla is not at the clinic she can be found sharing her love of conservation medicine by volunteering at the zoo. She also enjoys time with her friends and family including her fur kids. She enjoys traveling, playing the violin and saxophone, and practicing martial arts.
