Sharon E.
Hospital Manager
I have been an animal lover for as long as I can remember. My parents say since about 4 yrs old when dad brought home our 1st rescue dog.

The years have flown by and it has now been 25 years since I have joined VCA.  I have worked in all departments learning hands on and have now been in management for about 15 years.

In my free time I enjoy working with wood such as Scroll sawing, wood turning, gardening and riding my bike to work.

I have a 2 year old cat named Thomas and waiting for my next rescue dog to adopt me.
