Yasmine, Veterinary Assistant

I am in the veterinary field primarily because I love animals. Having many pets while growing up, I started having aspirations to care for animals as a career choice to include helping & educating pet owners. The satisfaction I get knowing I’ve helped an animal is what pushes me, even more, to be in this field. Working at SHVH has shown me so much about why working in this field is so amazing. The staff here is so dedicated to their patients, and their clients, and it makes me really proud to be part of such a team.

Joudi, Patient Care Assistant

I’ve felt connected to animals since I was a child but visiting different countries and seeing the abandonment and abuse that animals all over the world experience changed my life. Now I’m committed to making every animal I meet feel better as best I can. Nothing is more fulfilling to me than seeing a dog who was nervous and afraid coming into the hospital leave after their appointment filled with joy and confidence. Whether it’s through treats, playtime, or just a few minutes of gentle hugs to give them time to open up before the exam begins, I am so grateful that SHVH gives me the opportunity to be a part of that journey every day.
