Shannon says, "My heart is at Pleasant Animal Hospital, in Ashtabula, OH and I really love the doctors, my co-workers, clients and our patients. They are my family there, and I get the opportunity to experience things I probably wouldn't get elsewhere. Yes, we see mostly dogs and cats, but I've got to help with a marmoset monkey, an alligator, goats, ducks, and even a lemur! It is the greatest feeling to feel like part of a team and knowing that I make a difference."
When asked about her favorite part of her training at Great Lakes, Shannon said "by far the hands-on experience, going to the A.N.N.A. Shelter and Humane Society, and classmates brought in different animals that we all got to work on."
