We say goodbye… IMG_8731.jpg
Shawn joined ASAH in 2004 and has been Dr. Junger’s surgery technician for most of those years! Unfortunately for us, Shawn is so good, that she has been accepted into Vet School and will be leaving us to start her adventure to become a Doctor of Veterinary Medicine. In Shawn’s absence, Dr. Junger will continue to be supported by Shawn’s co-worker of 8 years, Marisa. Shawn will be missed more than she knows but we have hope that someday we get to work with her again!
