Our Team Dr. Stefanie Lusko Veterinarian
Hi, I’m Dr. Stefanie Lusko and I received my undergraduate degree from Washington State University. I continued my education in veterinary medicine at Ross University and completed my clinical year of veterinary school at Texas A&M. I then continued to do an internship in equine reproduction in Virginia and during that experience I decided that small animal medicine was a better long term fit for me. I continued my journey by starting at Banfield in October 2014. I since then have started at Northfield Veterinary Clinic with the wonderful staff here. My passions and hobbies include helping animals live happy healthier lives with an interest in surgery and weight management. I enjoy traveling and meeting new people, especially experiencing different cultures and spending quality time with friends and family.
Liz Practice Manager
Hello! My name is Liz and I have been working in the veterinary industry for about 9 years now. I graduated from Bowling Green State University in 2008 and I also have about 1 year of Vet Tech schooling completed as well. I work as a Veterinary Assistant and at the front desk as well so I get to enjoy every part of this fantastic hospital! I have one crazy yet perfect tortoiseshell cat named Summer. In my free time I enjoy horseback riding, working out, reading, spending time with friends and family, and "booping" Summer on the nose when she is not paying attention. I found my true calling in life when I started working at a veterinary hospital right out of college and immediately knew this is where I truly belong. I look forward to meeting you and every one of your wonderful fur babies here!! Sarah Registered Veterinary Technician
Hello, My name is Sarah. I became a registered vet tech in 2011. I pride myself in customer service and will treat your pet as my own. I feel cats are like potato chips, “you can’t just have one” so I have six! My fur children also consist of 2 dogs and 1 guinea pig. In my spare time, I like to go to the theatre. Musicals are my favorite. I also love to shop. New shoes are my weakness. I’ve been at Northfield Vet Hospital since July 2015 and already feel at home. I enjoy meeting new people and educating clients on how to properly care for their pets so stop in anytime with questions you may have. I look forward to meeting you.
