She started working with them in 2017 pet sitting, dog walking, volunteering and teaching training classes with a rescue, Our Companions in Manchester, CT. Shortly after, Shannon began working as a kennel technician at Animal Medical Clinic and soon moved up to a vet assistant and receptionist until 2022. Shannon then worked for Morris Vet Cardiology, until her retirement in 2023.

Michelle
Michelle got her start in veterinary medicine over 2 decades ago at a large shelter on Long Island, NY.  Beginning in the dispensary, she learned about many medications, what they treat, dosing and different veterinary medical terminology.  She later split her time learning some basic technician skills, feeding, cleaning, medicating and blood draws for various hospitalized animals.    

After 12 years at the shelter, she moved on to a private practice and made a switch to reception while also getting certified in pet grooming.  While there, she also took on more managerial tasks and then later moved on to an integrative practice learning alternative medicine such as Chinese herbs and acupuncture.  After spending over 7 years there, she relocated to Western MA.  Once getting situated and settled, Michelle accepted a position as Office Manager with West Springfield Veterinary Clinic.

In her free time, she enjoys spending time at home with her partner, their 3 dogs and cat, gardening, hiking and exploring the area, health and fitness.
