Shondi

Veterinary Assistant

Shondi grew up right here in the Lansing area, and felt a natural inclination toward pets from the time she was a little girl. She’s always considered it her responsibility to nurture the animals who offer so much to their loving owners. Working as a Veterinary Assistant allows Shondi to do just that!

Shondi began her professional career as a medical assistant in the human healthcare field before responding to an advertisement for a veterinary receptionist position in 2002. She began working in Fremont shortly afterward, and quickly realized that she had found her true calling—the veterinary industry allowed Shondi to put her nurturing instincts to good use while benefiting the pets that she loves so much.

Shondi joined the Pennsylvania Veterinary Care family in the fall of 2010 and has happily been serving Lansing’s animal companions and pet owners here ever since. One of her favorite parts of the job is soothing pets who are anxious, and she makes it her mission to provide a positive overall experience for the clinic’s visitors (both the four- and two-legged variety!).

At home, Shondi lives with her husband, their wonderful son, and five pets. The family has four silly cats—Dover, Indy, Mal, and Foo—as well as a spunky Golden retriever named Rufus who loves everyone. When she isn’t enjoying the company of her own animal friends or tending to pet owners’ needs here at the hospital, Shondi can be found working in her garden, crocheting items to sell at her fall-time craft show, and cooking delicious meals for family and friends.

Theresa

Receptionist

Theresa was born and raised right here in Lansing, where she always harbored a deep affection for animals. She never suspected that she would one day work in the veterinary field, but when her previous career started to leave her feeling unfulfilled, she knew it was time for a change. Theresa decided that a job in animal care was the perfect fit! She’s been a part of the Pennsylvania Veterinary Care family for over a decade.

Theresa first joined the Pennsylvania Veterinary Care team in May of 2005, and has worked in various areas of the clinic during her tenure here. Currently, she serves as a front-desk receptionist, where she loves greeting pet owners and their beloved animal companions as soon as they walk into the hospital. Theresa’s favorite part of her job is the element of surprise—she just never knows what each new day might bring!

Theresa and her husband of over 30 years, Tony, have three grown children and three wonderful grandchildren. They share their home with three Chihuahuas—Pedro, Tia Tortilla, and Kevin—as well as a pair of senior cats named Fifi and Tiger.

When she isn’t caring for pets here at the clinic, spending time with her own animal companions at home, or doting on her grandchildren, Theresa is a seamstress and a small-business owner. She runs her own online Etsy shop and sells her work to customers all over the country!
