Please Note: We will be closed Thursday, March 23rd and open again on Friday, March 24th.

Always welcome! We enjoy having clients in our hospital along with our patients. In an effort to limit the number of people in the building, we ask that you call when you arrive so that we may bring you directly to your pet’s disinfected exam room. We will continue to provide curbside service for those who prefer to wait in their vehicle outside. Since we are in close proximity during appointments, we recommend masks be worn if you’ve been sick, have been exposed to a sick individual, if you recently traveled, or if you recently attended a crowded event. Our team will provide a similar courtesy, and may choose to wear a mask at all times. Thank you for your cooperation and understanding!

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. 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 and hiking, even in Florida’s flat terrain, and she loves to travel. She has a soft spot for her senior citizen patients, so she tends to take in older pets, like her 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!

Triston Turoski

Senior Veterinary Assistant

Triston is a proud native of South Florida. After more than 5 years working with animals in rescues and other veterinary practices, she was drawn to the mission and vision of Alma Vet Connection to provide balanced and fear free veterinary care that matched her own high standards. She passionately advocates for her patients, especially when integrating holistic health and pain management, and appreciates the special connections made with pets and owners alike.

She has three pets of her own named Tao (her tuxedo cat from the streets), Deja (her beagle hound), and Cali (the love of her life Catahoula). When not caring for your fur babies, Triston spends time with her animals or out in nature, and she is always up for a travel adventure!

Bucket List Item: Go backpacking in Italy
