She has worked in the veterinary field since 1991. She attended Albertus Magnus College and received an Associate Degree in Business Management. Shannon is a Certified Veterinary Practice Manager as of August 2013, and in November of 2014, Shannon was awarded “Practice Manager of the Year” by the Veterinary Management Council of Connecticut. Before starting in the veterinary field she worked in “human medicine” at a doctor’s office and in a nursing home. Although that was rewarding, her love for animals won out and she hasn’t looked back.

Shannon and her husband Michael have five children that keep them very busy. She and her family have three kitties at home (Neil, Tank, and Mr. Willis), a dog (Cornbread), and ten free-range Guinea hens. When she does find some spare time she enjoys crocheting and running.
