Dr. Stephanie LeeSnipWell Executive Director & Lead Veterinarian
Dr. Lee is a native of the Steele Creek area and has loved animals as long as she can remember. During a career fair in second grade, she spent the majority of her time with the veterinarian and decided then she would one day help animals. She attended North Carolina State University undergraduate school (1990-1993) and College of Veterinary Medicine (1993-1997). Dr. Lee worked in general practice for 10 years before moving into shelter medicine and spay/neuter.
Through her experience as an associate and relief veterinarian at many different practices in Charlotte, NC, Wilmington, NC and Knoxville, TN she was able to experience a wide range of practice philosophies and clientele. Her decision to become a spay/neuter and wellness veterinarian came due to the high population of animals that were losing their lives in shelters simply because they didn’t have a home or access to affordable vet care. Dr. Lee transitioned to high-quality, high volume spay/neuter surgery and medicine in 2007 and is excited to bring these much needed services to her hometown of Fort Mill, SC in hopes of reaching those in her community who are most at risk.
Outside of work, Dr. Lee stays busy with her vibrant daughter and many rescued pets, including dogs, cats, a rabbit, a turtle, and a goldﬁsh. Her hobbies include reading, walking/hiking with her daughter and dogs, listening to music, gardening, and enjoying the local wildlife.
