Shirley started working at VCA Bridgeport Animal Hospital in 1979 and joined our team at VCA Smoketown in 2012. She started working in the kennels and just fell in love with the animals and decided this is where her heart was meant to be. When not working Shirley enjoys reading, sewing and spending time with her husband Jim, adult children, and her dogs Sophie, Pippin & Leila.
" I enjoy being a veterinary receptionist because I love working with people and spending time with their pets everyday. I enjoy building relationships with clients as I get to know them."
Kim has been with VCA Smoketown since 2000. In her spare time Kim enjoys hiking, camping, swimming & reading. Kim has 2 dogs, Lacey Marie (Standard Poodle) and Libbi (Border Collie Mix).
" I do what I do because I love coming in to work and experiencing something new and different every day. At the end of the day, being able to spend my days taking care of the animals and clients makes this such a rewarding job."
