Dr. Taylor Huffman, D.V.M.
Dr. Taylor Huffman is a 2019 graduate of Ross University School of Veterinary Medicine on the island of St. Kitts. She was raised a bit up-river in Rockport Indiana and from a young age held a deep-seated love of horses. She loves working with all animals, but seven plus years of summer camp barn work pushed her towards equine medicine.
At present, Dr. Huffman has the crazy cat lady starter pack of four cats (Merlin, Neville, Iroh and Salem) and one mini Australian Shepherd (Persephone). In her spare time Taylor loves to travel, backpack, scuba dive and spend time with friends and family (human and animal alike). She is ecstatic to be here at Stone Ridge and cannot wait to meet you and your equine friends!
