Dr. Rebecca Steers
Dr. Rebecca Steers became a veterinarian because she wanted to help people, with the bonus of helping animals too! Dr. Steers practices both conventional Western veterinary medicine and traditional Chinese veterinary medicine, so you can benefit from her belief that the more tools she has to help her patients, the better. Having graduated from Boston College with a degree in Spanish literature, she loves being bilingual because it’s another way to connect with pet owners.
The variety in Dr. Steers’ background helps her to see how each patient and family is unique. After gaining experience in shelters, research, primary care practice, and specialty practice, Dr. Steers attended the Cummings School of Veterinary Medicine at Tufts University. She eventually put those language skills to work doing research in Mexico. When Dr. Steers graduated from Tufts University in 2010, she was commissioned as a Captain in the US Army in Okinawa, Japan. There she earned two Army Achievement Medals: one for her successful contribution to opening a new veterinary treatment facility and another for her direct involvement in Operation Tomodachi’s success after the earthquake and tsunami in 2011.
Dr. Steers speaks nationally and locally on a range of topics, including leadership, mentorship, diversity and inclusion, and a variety of clinical topics, for both her veterinary colleagues and the community as a whole. If you want to know more, you can visit her website. However, her favorite moments are the one-on-one conversations she has every day with pet parents and the opportunities to learn more from each other.
When Dr. Steers isn’t working, she enjoys getting outdoors with her partner, Eric. They hike, even in Florida’s flat terrain, and love to travel. She has a soft spot for her senior citizen patients, so she tends to take in older pets, like their current dog named Jackson (also known as Goober). But, if you make her choose, her favorite animal is the cheetah.
Bucket List Item: Visit every state in the US and every continent in the world!

Client Experience Specialist
Rebecca, originally from New York, comes to us with years of experience successfully managing businesses ranging from a consignment boutique in New Jersey to recently a pet care and grooming company in Boca Raton. She has loved animals since childhood and shares that passion with her fiancé, Jason. They have two beautiful and spoiled dogs, Polo (a handsome Maltese rescue) and Grace (a diva Labrador Retriever), who make quite the dynamic duo; think of Sonny and Cher but with more spunk and hair. Rebecca initially found Alma Vet Connection as a client and witnessed the level of care, passion, and integrity shown to every patient. She just had to join Dr. Steers and the team to continue further their goal of providing stellar service and medicine to all patients. While not at work, Rebecca spends her time trying different recipes to cook, venturing out to various restaurants, and playing with Polo and Grace. Rebecca graduated from West Virginia University with a B.S. in Consumer Science.
Bucket List Item: To cruise around Europe and experience all the various cuisines.
