Dr. Sturtevant is a veterinarian at Mid-Rivers Equine Centre from Franklin, Massachusetts. She has been showing Hunter Jumper horses since age five and in her teens began riding imported young horses. Showing was an enjoyable experience, but she found working with the young horses was far more rewarding. Her interest in veterinary medicine was sparked by the Veterinarians she encountered at her horse show barn. That, combined with the satisfaction she received from working with show prospects, she quickly determined that equine medicine would become her career path.
Dr. Sturtevant’s formal education began with a degree from the University of Louisville, culminating with a Doctorate of Veterinary Medicine from the University of Missouri College of Veterinary Medicine. Along the way, she competed in collegiate IHSA competitions as a Team Captain, earned an MBA from William Woods University – a unique accomplishment for a veterinarian, and completed two externships at Mid-Rivers Equine Centre.
Dr. Sturtevant currently focuses her practice area on Wellness Care and Emergency Medicine. With her extensive background working with Hunter Jumper horses and her unique combination of veterinary medicine and business expertise, she is well-equipped to provide exceptional care to Mid-Rivers’ patients and clients.
