Shannon Smith, RVT

Registered Veterinary Technician

I grew up in Toronto, Ontario and attended Cedar Valley College in Texas, graduated in 2014 and wrote the VTNE in 2014. I have worked in 3 emergency hospitals in Ontario. The area of the veterinary industry that I enjoy the most is surgery and equipment. I love the passion the joyful staff have and the variety of patients. My favourite part of my job is being the voice for the animals that need help.

Some fun facts about me are that I ride a motorcycle (Harley Davidson) in the summer and am a sucker for a fun dad joke. I have 2 cats Dyna and Kaboodle and 1 dog named Wesson. My husband is part of the military and I have travelled across Canada to each new posting with him. I am also a Certified Master Groomer.
