Client ServiceRebecca H
We welcomed Rebecca to our team at VCA Annandale in January 2013, but she has worked for other local VCA hospitals since June of 2012.
Rebecca moved to Northern Virginia from Cleavland, Ohio and is one of our most creative team members. Her wide interests include: music, painting, photography, figure skating, baseball, football and hockey. She attended Kent State University, studying Theatre and Dance. Rebecca's favorite thing about veterinary medicine is witnessing the human animal bond, and the joy that pet owners have knowing that we have helped their furry children.
"I moved from Cleveland, Ohio St. Patrick's Day week of 2008 to start what I thought would be just a job to get me through for a while until I was settled into my new environment. Five years later I'm completely addicted and love what I do. VCA has taught me so many important life skills that I will be forever grateful for. VCA as a teaching hospital has definitely lived up to their standards and I don't think I would be happier anywhere else. It makes my day to see the quality of care we provide our patients and clients. I just love to see the smiles on the owners faces when they know that we are here for them." - Rebecca.
Shannon joined VCA Annandale in 2010 bringing with her a background in the hospitality industry. She is a key member of our team, assisting clients and patients any way she can. To expand her skills Shannon has also been training as a Veterinary Assistant. What makes Shannon's day? Working with the team, getting to see the furry friends and talking to our amazing clients. Having grown up with pets she is thrilled to work with animals every day.
She was raised in Syracuse, New York but has planted her roots in Virginia with her growing family. Her two boys keep her busy when she is not at work but she manages to make time for her other interests: cooking, baking and reading.
Why am I here at VCA Annandale Animal Hospital?
I'm here because I have passion for working with people and their pets. My long-life dream is to become a veterinarian. I'm getting started by working in the animal care field to increase my knowledge. I have a lot of experience working with people and animals. I will always give you the warmest welcome. I have ben working with animals since I was 16. I will always care for you and your furry family member. I always feel like I make a small difference when I reach out a hand. I was always surrounded by dogs, cats, cows, chickens, and horses. My love for animals grew each year. I have worked as a kennel attendant before and also did 2 years of animals science at Edison Academy. I have groomed pets and have learned much about the animal care field. I dont have pets now but I pet sit my family's pet's. I'm fluent in Spanish and English. I am currently attending NOVA of two years but plan to transfer to Virginia Wesleyan. My plan is to become Veterinary Technician first then begin the process to become a veterinarian. I have always loved being around people and animals.
