VCA St. Clair Shores Animal Hospital


  • Hospital Manager

    Mary Elley Schwanitz

    Hi my name is Mary Ellen.   I have been the Hospital Manager at VCA Allen Park Animal Hospital for 5 years and now am thrilled to be joining VCA St. Clair Shores Animal Hopsital's team!  Prior to my veterinary career, I spent 18+ years in the insurance industry holding positions from account management, management and marketing.  I decided that it was time to find a career that involved animals yet utilizing my past experiences.  I am lucky to have found VCA.  I have always had animals growing up.  I was "that" child that brought pets home without permission and some how my parents let me continue to live with them.  I currently have one dog, Zoe (rescue of course).  She is a boarder collie/mix and is quite the handful but can't image her not in my life.
