Shannon grew up in Forest and attended school here, even brought her own animals to the Forest Veterinary Clinic. She was deeply interested in this field as a child and as she grew older, that fondness for animals grew stronger. Shannon explored her liking for this career through her co-op that she did in grade 11 and was enlightened. She knew she wanted to be a Registered Veterinary Technician.
After graduating from North Lambton Secondary, she attended University of Guelph-Ridgetown Campus in 2011 and recieved her Diploma in Veterinary Technology. The big city was calling and she was hired in London soon after school. She completed the regulations set by the Ontario Association of Veterinary Technicians and was Registered in 2012.
Shannon had different jobs in and around London. This gave her experience in medical emergencies, technical duties, and management services. Shannon enjoys many different aspects of Veterinary Medicine, but her favourites are dentistry, continuing education and client services.
Shannon has a strong love for animals. She is a very happy person to begin with, but knowing what she does everyday just makes her day that much brighter. She decided to move back to the small town of Forest as she missed the area and the people who live here. She hopes to rekindle relationships and make new ones! Shannon enjoys music, movies, theatre, sports and camping. She has two adopted kitties named Hobbes & Wilbur, and will eventually be adding a much needed pup to the mix. Shannon is very excited to be apart of the team and hopes to be of good service to you and your animals. When we strengthen the bond between Veterinarian and owner, if we can reach an unbreakable trust, it works out best for the one we are all here for, the animal.
