Stephanie Boone, CEO

Stephanie Boone


Stephanie was born and raised in Temple, Texas and has been a proud resident of Austin on and off for 20 years. She founded Wondercide in 2009 after she nearly lost her dog Luna to pesticide poisoning from the flea & tick control prescribed by her vet. When she couldn’t find a safe and effective alternative, she invented one! And Wondercide was born.

Her Wonderpack includes her Akita-Husky who started it all: Luna (RIP), her Dalmation-Heeler Mercy, cats Nova & Cyrus, and her latest senior Austin Pets Alive rescue pup Diamond Diva, a Malamute-Husky mix.
