Shannon started at Marine View as a part-time receptionist in August of 1996. After graduating from Seattle University in 2001 with a B.S. in pre-veterinary science, she changed positions and became a full-time assistant. After determining that this was definitely the career for her, she obtained her state and national veterinary technician license in 2002. Although she loves all aspects of being a technician, dentistry is her passion. She loves that Marine View encourages continued learning and excelling in this field.
