Chelsea Stern DVM

Ashley Worth Street Veterinary

I’ve always been passionate about pets and science, so going into veterinary medicine seemed the perfect combination of my interests. After continuously begging my parents for a pet, they let me adopt a sickly kitten we affectionately named Marlin. Marlin would go on to live for an impressive 18 years and see me through many life stages including adolescence, college, and vet school until, sadly, I had to say goodbye to him this past year. Caring for this sweet creature firmly cemented the idea that I should pursue a career in the veterinary field…

I was born on a tiny island called Manhattan and raised in Westchester, NY. After studying biology at SUNY Geneseo, I obtained my Doctorate of Veterinary Medicine from Ohio State University. I’m thrilled to be part of the Worth Street Veterinary team as I share in the philosophy of supporting the human-animal bond and providing high-quality medicine in a way that doesn’t cause fear, anxiety, or stress in our patients. I also volunteered and worked at several shelters prior to and during vet school, so knowing that WSVC supports several local shelters is a cause that’s near and dear to my heart. Specific areas of interest include internal medicine, geriatric care, and soft tissue surgery. I’m extremely detail-oriented and meticulous by nature, which lends itself nicely to thorough treatment plans and surgical techniques.

When I’m not at home caring for my 18-year-old childhood cat, Cashew, you can find me trying out new restaurants or traveling with my husband, visiting with friends and family, enjoying the local ski slopes, or scuba diving.
