A bit about Dr. Stobnicki

Dr. Anna Stobnicki knew from an early age that she loved working with animals, and as she got older, she realized her fascination with medicine. She attended veterinary school at the University of Illinois and internships at Southern Arizona Veterinary Specialty and Emergency Center (rotating), and Westvet in Idaho (surgical), before coming to Summit. 

 

Dr. Stobnicki originally thought she’d specialize in surgery, but after she made the switch to ER, she can’t imagine going back (and she’s found her background in surgery to be a huge benefit working in ER!) She loves the fast-paced and unpredictable work environment of critical care, as well as the challenge each case presents. She sees every case as a puzzle with many parts; the history, the diagnostics, collaboration with other specialists, treatment, etc. And she finds the process of solving the puzzle to be very exciting.

 

Outside of work, Dr. Stobnicki loves being outdoors. She has a bit of a green thumb and collects rare and exotic plants. She also loves cooking, hiking/backpacking, skiing, and spending time with her motley crew of rescues at home: Nutterbutt, Precious, Captain Chunk, Biggie Smalls, and Chewie. Her boyfriend keeps telling her they’re at their limit, but she’s pretty sure they can squeeze in a Chihuahua or two.
