Stephanie Rubino


Stephanie was born and raised in Williamsburg, Virginia. She has recently completed her undergraduate work and now holds a Bachelor of Science degree in biology from Bridgewater College. She next plans to continue her schooling to obtain her license as a Veterinary Technician.

Stephanie participated in Loop Abroad’s College Veterinary Service program during the summer of 2016 and has engaged in multiple internships and volunteer opportunities in the veterinary field over the years in various small animal clinics. Before this, in 2013, she attended a vocational school where she was enrolled in a veterinary science course. It was here where she fully developed her passion for working with animals.

Through this schooling she had the opportunity to compete in an academic competition through Skills USA and placed 1st in the district in veterinary assisting, and went on to win 5th in the state. Stephanie had been a Teacher’s Assistant in the biology labs at her college for the past three years and is well versed in teaching students complex biological concepts.

In her free time, Stephanie enjoys spending time with her friends, eating Chick-fil-a, watching her favorite shows (Law and Order: SVU, Murder She Wrote and NCIS), playing various sports such as volleyball and softball, and watching her younger brother play baseball.
