Meet the friendly staff at Shenandoah Valley Veterinary Clinic!
Hello friends, I’m Kirby. Most would describe me as the most loveable dog ever! I am a healthy, happy and adorable (if I might say so myself) amputee. I enjoy the good life thanks to Dr. Malick (my mom) and the staff here at SVVC. Some of my favorite activities include eating, giving high 5’s and most important rolling up in my blanket for a long nap. Oh I almost forgot I will do just about anything for a snack. Most days you will find me rolled up in my blanket on a big fluffy bed. (probably dreaming of a snack!)
Dr. Tracy Stein was born in Los Angeles, but grew up in San Diego, moving to Davis in 1995. The thought of becoming a veterinarian has been top of mind since she was 8 years old. She remembers having a parent come to her classroom to discuss what a veterinarian did and vividly remembers the abdominal radiographs that showed a dog had eaten a rock. At that young age, she knew she wanted to be able to help animals and found her passion and drive to pursue a career in veterinary medicine.
Dr. Stein received her Bachelor's degree (Animal Science- 1998) and Master’s degree (Animal Science-2000) from UCD. She received her veterinary degree from UCD – 2004 graduate. She then completed an equine internship at Loomis Basin Equine Medical Center and then pursued a mixed animal practice in the Marysville/Lincoln area. Eventually, moved to owning her own equine ambulatory practice and practicing small animal medicine, part-time.
Originally, Dr. Stein worked locally in the Sacramento area, with a temporary relocation to Minnesota (2011-2014) to support her husband through a veterinary surgical residency. Dr. Stein has a passion for emergency medicine and after 10 years of working in an emergency practice setting, she has decided to return to working in a clinic that provides more personalized and long-term care, to be able to form bonds and relationships with clients and their pets. Joining the team at Shenandoah Valley Veterinary Hospital as a relief doctor in 2018, she has decided to join our team as a part-time associate doctor. She has found that she loves the clients and staff and recently moved locally to Plymouth.
Her husband, Dr. Justin Uhl, is a board-certified veterinary surgeon, and they have two children together. Typically, they like to vacation together and when time allows, she loves to ride horses. Currently, the Stein household has 5 horses, 1 donkey, 3 goats, 6 chickens, 3 dogs (two Labradors and a chihuahua X) and three cats; they are constantly making her laugh and keeping everyone on their toes.been top of mind, since she was 8 years old.

Hello, my name is Cailey and I am the lead veterinary technician here at the Shenandoah Valley Veterinary Clinic. I was born and raised in Amador and El Dorado counties. Ever since I was a child I’ve wanted to work in a profession involving animals. I began my journey by acquiring my Bachelors degree in cellular biology, then used my skills and knowledge to become part of this wonderful family we have here at the clinic. I have built fantastic relationships with my teammates, patients and clients for the past three years. I am a strong, organized, hard-working individual and I strive to make sure that all the animals and clients that I work with receive the best care possible along with all the love necessary for them to feel comfortable with their experience.

Hi! I'm Aubry Bassett, I was born and raised here in Amador County where I grew up on a small ranch in Sutter Creek. My passion for animal care started at a young age, helping my mom vet the horses and dogs. Over the years, my love for our furry friends grew and I have been blessed with the opportunity to grow my knowledge and love for animals here at Shenandoah valley vet as a vet tech assistant.
