Shelby came onboard at Back Mountain Vet in November of 2022 as a part-time Veterinary Assistant. She is working part-time right now because she is currently a full-time student in the Johnson College Veterinary Nursing Program, where she is President of the Vet Tech Club. Shelby is already a certified dog groomer, having earned her degree from the Paragon School of Pet Grooming. As you can see, she is a real go-getter, who hopes to go back to school to earn her Bachelors Degree in Animal Sciences. Shelby is also quite the people-person in addition to being an animal lover, so her favorite part of the job so far has been conversing with new clients and getting to know their pets personally. When not deep in her studies or hard at work, Shelby enjoys being outdoors on nature hikes with her Pitbull mix, Gemma. Whenever time allows, Shelby loves to travel, but since free time is limited, she splits her time with Gemma and her mini-lop/angora mix bunny, Tiffany.
