Stephen Frattini

Stephen Frattini DVM is a 2010 graduate. During his time at Cornell College of Veterinary Medicine he spent his time focused on production animal medicine, specifically fish and invertebrates (and racing bicycles). Stephen was the first student to take advantage of an NIH fellowship Veterinary Student Training in Biomedical Research, allowing him to step away from veterinary studies for one year and focus on research into a fish disease outbreak in the Great Lakes Basin.

Upon graduation Stephen undertook a postdoctoral fellowship in neuroscience at The Feinstein Institute for Medical Research, and after four years founded his current practice, The Center For Aquatic Animal Research and Management (CFAARM). CFAARM is a seafood veterinary practice, attempting to develop a new integrated approach to seafood health; for animals, humans and the environment.

Stephen currently resides in Dutchess County.

Cara Rosenbaum

Cara Rosenbaum grew up in Bedford, New York, received her bachelors degree in Psychology from Brown University in 2012 and her DVM from Cornell University in 2017. Dr. Rosenbaum completed a year long internship with Fairfield Equine Associates before packing up and moving to the Northwest Suburbs of Chicago to join Chicago Equine Medical Center. Cara is in her second year of practice with CEMC practicing on a variety of patients from companion horses to international competitors. While working at CEMC Cara has maintained her ties to the Chincoteague Pony Herd as an official consultant and veterinarian for the herd.

Cara misses the East Coast but is enjoying the copious opportunities for lake kayaking, corn mazes, and easy running terrain. She is still actively competing her horse and enjoys taking her elderly dog out for adventures.
