Shauna was born and raised in California where she attended Westech College in 2016 to become a Vet Assistant and has loved every moment of her career in the field. She grew up with all kinds of animals such as dogs, cats, goats, chickens, ducks, lizards, and even snakes! Her passion has always been horses and she spent all her extra time while growing up training and riding them. She has a special place in her heart for working with BLM (wild) Mustangs and even worked on a cattle ranch. Growing up she knew that as long as she was working with animals it wouldn’t feel like work at all and set out to find her career in this industry.
Shauna moved to the Boulder area in 2017 and loves what Colorado has to offer. In her spare time she enjoys spending time outdoors exploring new creek and lake areas where her beautiful six year old daughter, Lilliana, and rowdy mutts, Bonnie and Clyde, can bask in the sunshine and cool off in the water. Shauna shares her cozy apartment with 4 mischievous rats: Foxy, Roxy, Munchkin (aka Baby), and David. She also cares for our clinic cat, Smooshie, on the weekends! Shauna’s goal is to eventually go back to school to become a Certified Veterinary Technician so she can further her skills to care for animals of all kinds. She looks forward to continuing to grow and learn at Alpine Hospital for Animals and has loved getting to know our patients so far.
