Christine Stencel, DVM

Dr. Stencel earned her DVM from the University of Wisconsin-Madison in 2005. She is Fear Free Certified and Certified Cat Friendly. She decided to become a vet towards the end of high school, because veterinary medicine combines her love for math and science with her love for animals. Dr. Stencel is an advocate for good nutrition and routine dental care, as they are the two most impactful and positive ways to influence a pet’s health. As a veterinarian, Dr. Stencel finds it rewarding to cultivate long-term relationships with people and their four-legged family members.

Dr. Stencel and her husband have two children, two cats (Starla and Dolly), and one dog (Ziggy). Starla has a favorite mouse toy that she carries around the house every night at about 9PM, which she eventually drops at the foot of the bed. Dolly is a rescue who occasionally gets in fights with Starla, and is currently being treated for diabetes.

Outside of work, Dr. Stencel enjoys spending time with her family, camping, gardening, reading, and taekwondo.


Nicole, Practice Manager

Nicole finds it extremely rewarding to be able to work with pets and people, because she loves animals and helping others. She has 2 grown children and 2 dogs, Sadie (Boxer mix) and Misty (Pit Bull mix). Nicole is a proud mom and grandma, and she loves her family more than anything else. When she’s not at work, she enjoys visiting Wisconsin Dells and hanging out in the lazy river.


Lorie, Patient Care Coordinator

Lorie previously worked in reception and management for an animal emergency hospital for over 10 years. Her love and compassion for animals and their care kept her interested in expanding her knowledge in veterinary medicine, and we’re grateful to have her on our team. Lorie has been with us for 4 years (as of 2021) and enjoys meeting, greeting, and interacting with furry felines on a daily basis!

Outside of work, Lorie enjoys spending time and having fun outings with her 2 children and 7 grandchildren. She also likes attending church functions, reading, doing word puzzles, cooking, and taking long walks.


Megan, Certified Veterinary Technician

Megan attended St. Petersburg College, where she completed her associate degree in veterinary technology and her bachelor’s degree in animal science. At a young age, she recognized that she had a love for all animals, and at 14, she became a vegetarian. She is proud to be an advocate for all animals. Megan worked in general practice for a couple of years, then transferred to Tampa Bay Veterinary Specialists & Emergency Care Center, where she worked in internal medicine, cardiology, and oncology for 14 years . Megan then moved home in 2020 to be closer to her family and joined The Cat Doctor shortly after.

Megan has 3 cats, Pinky (Sphynx), Gertrude (Persian), and Ivan (Sphynx). When she’s not at work, she enjoys spending time with her family, cats, and friends. She also enjoys traveling and scuba diving.
