Shannon came to Spruce Hill after working as a veterinary technician for animal hospitals in Connecticut. In 2017, she graduated from the University of Rhode Island with a bachelor’s degree in animal science. After college, she had planned to pursue a career in public health, but got sidetracked after volunteering at the Mystic Aquarium and working at a veterinary clinic. We feel very lucky she decided to stay in this field! 

When she’s not working, Shannon enjoys long nights, horseback riding, playing video games with her husband, and reading every fantasy novel that exists. Her fur children are a cat named Thor and a dog named Rebel.
