From a very young age Shawnah felt she was put on this Earth to serve animals. Her great love and respect for all living things has place her on her current path. She has been with Dr Brinkmann since November of 2000. Her well rounded experience and expertise include surgical nursing, small animal dentistry, and practice management. She is also a level II Reiki practitioner. She is the kind of person who is intimately aware of her coworkers, her clients, and her patients at all times. Her level of compassion almost seems debilitating at times. Shawnah says that everyone she knows has a pet, and if they don’t she finds them one. She believes she doesn’t work a day in her life because she loves what she does so much. Her home life includes her husband Jim and her four furkids and spiked baby: Woogie Bear, Oatmeal, Cagney.and Marvin (hedgehog).
