Stephanie Skinner, DVM

Resident in Nephrology-Urology

Nephrology & Urology

I am originally from the northern Virginia area, though went to Kansas for both my undergraduate and veterinary degree. I spent two years at Friendship pursuing a rotating and specialty medicine internship before moving on to the University of Florida to complete my internal medicine residency. I am excited to be back at FHA to further my training with the Nephrology & Urology and Extracorporeal Therapies service.

Outside of the hospital, I look forward to continuing to explore the D.C. area, going on hikes, reading, and traveling.
