Dr. Megan Stapleton completed an Associates in Applied Science degree in Veterinary Technology from SUNY Delhi in 2009. She began a Bachelor of Science in Biotechnology from SUNY Cobleskill and was one semester away from completing the degree, but accepted an offer from Ontario Veterinary College to begin studies a year earlier than anticipated. She received her Doctorate of Veterinary Medicine in 2017. Her clinical interests include shelter medicine, community outreach, One Health, working dog medicine, and disaster and emergency response.
In her free time, Megan loves to travel and explore new areas, and can often be found capturing new experiences through the lens of her camera. When not on the road, she enjoys spending quality time with her three dogs Mr. Echo, Liberty and Zeus, and her cat, Zazzy. She loves to be outside and is looking forward to exploring the hiking trails in Ithaca. On the colder days, she will be found curled up with a book, with at least half of the furkids piled on and around her.
