Stella is a native of this great city of Cincinnati. Like many who find themselves caring for animals, they are drawn to her as much she is to them. Since the age of 6, she has been riding and studying equestrian care. In the saddle, Stella is an accomplished competitive English rider, who may secretly enjoy barrel racing more. Adding to her experience, she has cared for and raised goats, turkeys, chickens, ducks, and donkeys - A perfect match around here! She is a recent graduate of Loveland High School and adores her Bernese Mountain Dog, Moose. She spends much of her free time supporting local horses and families as a trusted equine advisor. 

P.S. - Before you ask....No, she has not seen "Streetcar Named Desire".

Our Companion Team

Emily Szeremeta currently resides just north of Cincinnati, in Lebanon Ohio. Emily made an early commitment in her life that dedicated her talent and energy to animals, through a career in veterinary medicine. She reinforced that commitment in 2013, when she graduated from Columbus State Community College with an associates degree as a veterinary technician. Following several internships at highly recognized veterinary hospitals, the team at Cincinnati Hills Animal Clinic welcomed her as one of their own. As a certified veterinary technician, Emily is a valued member of the team. Emily and Tyler have a growing son, and a loving beagle named Lucy.
Following graduation from veterinary school, Dr. Carullo moved to beautiful (yet often rainy) Portland, Oregon.  There she worked as an associate veterinarian at a thriving small animal hospital.  After three years in Oregon, she and her family decided ‘there was no place like home’, and to leave the Pacific Northwest.  Moving closer to home opened the door to pursue her dream of veterinary practice ownership in Ohio.  Dr. Carullo and her husband Charlie live in Cincinnati with their three daughters, two dogs (Roman and Hazel) and cat (Dakota).

Dr. Katherine (Katie) Carullo received her Bachelor of Arts degree, with a double major in Zoology and Environmental Studies from Ohio Wesleyan University in Delaware, Ohio. Dr. Carullo spent her summers during that time, working as a wrangler on a guest horse and cattle ranch in Wyoming. Immediately following her undergraduate work, she focused the next three years gaining an introduction to veterinary medicine, as an assistant in a high performing small animal practice.  These valuable experiences and the support of strong mentors, served to shape her desire for a life in the field of veterinary medicine.  Her experiences on the ranch and at the animal clinic, cultivated her passion for working with animals and the people who love them.  Dr. Katie Carullo graduated with honors from The Ohio State University College of Veterinary Medicine in 2010.
