Britannia Heights Veterinary Clinic - Our Staff


Practice Manager

Shannon's passion for animals started at a very young age with an undeniable love for horses. When it was time to think of a career all she wanted to do was work with horses. Shannon's post secondary education started with a two year program in equine message therapy after which she worked on a racehorse breeding farm. Shortly after that Shannon got a job working in a veterinary emergency clinic and soon learned that she had quite a passion for medicine. Shannon went back to school for veterinary technology and has now worked in emergency medicine, veterinary day practice and animal shelter environments. Shannon has recently adopted a kitten, she was "petless" for over a year and we all know that doesn't last long when working in the veterinary industry. While she misses having a dog around she thought a kitten might be the practical pet for her current lifestyle. Well so much for that... Her new kitten Prewitt is certainly not for the faint of heart. This little Bengle has stolen her heart and has proven to be quite the "dog" type kitten. He loves visiting the clinic and going on adventures to the pet store and Chapters. We hope he keeps up his regular visits with us, he sure is a little love bug with lots to say.
