Dr. Stephanie Krein was born in the Pacific Northwest in Seattle, WA but has lived all over the United States including the Southeast, Midwest, West, and Northwest.
Dr. Krein attended Miami University (Ohio) and majored in Exercise Science. She graduated from the University of Illinois School of Veterinary Medicine in 2007. She then completed a rotating internship in Chicago at VCA Berwyn and Aurora in 2008 and spent the next two years practicing emergency medicine at Cape Cod Veterinary Specialists located in Buzzards Bay, MA. It was during these two years that she realized she had a love for anesthesia and pharmacology. Dr. Krein completed a residency in anesthesia and analgesia at Tufts University in 2013.
She began her career as an anesthesiologist in 2013 as a clinical lecturer at the University of Pennsylvania where she spent her time both teaching veterinary students and running the clinic floor. In 2015 she made the move up to Boston to work at the Angell Animal Medical Center for over 6 years. Dr. Krein joined MVA in August 2021.
Although she enjoys most aspects of anesthesia, her main interests are in critical care and in early and enhanced recovery from anesthesia.
In her off time she enjoys spending time with friends, enjoying good food and drinks, taking her golden retriever to the trails, and doing anything on the water.
