  • Michelle
    Licensed Veterinary Technician

    Michelle’s specific areas of interest in veterinary medicine include anesthesia, dentistry, and client communications.  “We only recommend things for your pets that we’d do for our own fur babies,” she says.  She enjoys seeing puppies and kittens grow up, and building connections with pet owners.  Michelle wishes more clients understood that people don’t go into veterinary careers for the money, and that it’s far easier and less costly to prevent diseases than to treat them.

  • Sherman Stenson
    Practice Manager

    “Pets are both a relationship and a responsibility,”  Sherman says. “Don’t get one as home décor or as a fashion accessory.  It’s a living creature whose proper care must be a priority.  If you pull up in a $70,000 car and tell us about your Tahiti vacation, then decline an important vaccine or don’t keep your pet on heartworm preventive, that's irresponsible.”  With a B.S. in Industrial & Operations Engineering and an MBA, Sherman had a highly-successful career in operations planning and leadership prior to joining the AHSR team.
