In addition to her clinical endeavors, Dr. Steinagel is an active member of several professional organizations, as well as a published author with publications covering a wide variety of topics, including vitamin C supplementation in giant elephant shrews, mussel hematology and biochemistry, and endoscopy in psittacines. Although interested in all aspects of veterinary medicine, Dr. Steinagel is particularly passionate about small mammal medicine, reptile medicine, zoo and wildlife medicine, and conservation medicine. Her favorite part about being a veterinarian is having the opportunity to learn something new everyday – whether that be working with a new species or learning new technical/surgical techniques. She also enjoys working in a field that allows her to build new relationships with clients and their pets on a regular basis.
When not caring for patients, Dr. Steinagel enjoys participating in outdoor activities, such as hiking, biking, running and swimming, as well as spending time with her husband and their energetic pug, Elvis.
