Hello! My name is Shanyn and I am proud to be a Veterinary assistant with VCPI! I recently spent 10 years working in a 9-1-1 center but am now thrilled to be doing what I have always wanted to do, which is working with animals and their people. Growing up I always had animals surrounding me and I wanted to become a Veterinarian. While attending college I had 2 amazing children and chose to focus on raising them while working at the 9-1-1 center. My kids are now 17 and 14 and I have come full circle and am back attending school to receive my Veterinary Technician certification. When I’m not at work loving on your amazing furry family members, I am at home working to grow our farm and ranch in Strasburg alongside my wonderful husband. We grow our own produce as well as have critters that range from goats and llamas to dogs, turkeys, ducks, rabbits, lizards, hedgehogs and chickens! You could say that animals truly are my life and I LOVE IT! I look forward to seeing you and your own wonderful pets at VCPI!
