Meet Our Team

Dr. Rozann Stay

Partner

Originally from Northern Minnesota, Dr. Stay has been infatuated with horses since day one. Her first horse, Ash, was one of the perfect ones and she had the opportunity to try many different riding disciplines through her early partnerships with her horses.

Dr. Stay attended Iowa State University College of Veterinary Medicine and launched Iowa Equine in 2012. In practice, Dr. Stay’s greatest passions are understanding the goals of owners and finding ways to help horses perform their best so those goals can be reached. Dr. Stay believes each horse and rider combination is unique and takes a flexible and open-minded approach to solving performance issues and health challenges.

When she isn’t wearing her stethoscope, Dr. Stay spends time on the farm with her husband, daughter, and horses.

Dr. Stephanie White

Partner

Dr. White is an Iowa native and finds great emotional reward in working with animals and their people. She was drawn to the veterinary profession through her love of science and intellectual challenges and enjoys working up tough cases.

Dr. White is a graduate of Iowa State University College of Veterinary Medicine and is certified in veterinary acupuncture. Through her training and practice experience, Dr. White has come to enjoy taking the time to establish a connection with her patients and clients, and then taking the best care of them. Dr. White is a believer in the golden rule and brings the same care and attention to her clients and patients that she would expect if she were in their shoes (horse or human!).

When she is not in the vet truck, Dr. White enjoys spending time with her husband, Dan, and son, Marshall, caring for their large variety of farmyard fauna.
