Veterinary Assistant

Hi! My Name is Shannon D. Working with, and helping animals has been a passion of mine since I was a little girl. Over the years I have been lucky enough to fulfill my dreams. I have 5 years so far working in a vet clinic. I have also furthered my career by becoming a certified pet groomer and obedience trainer. In my spare time when I’m not working with animal rescue or playing with my fur-babies Ashley and Midnight, I love to spend my days down by the water relaxing to the calming sounds of nature.
