Certified Veterinary Technicians
Shauna has loved animals her entire life and knew from a young age that the veterinary profession was meant for her. She has been a certified veterinary technician with Newberg Veterinary Hospital since 1995, and especially loves veterinary dentistry and working with farm animals. In fact, Shauna recently founded a non-profit here in Newberg called Wildwood Farm Sanctuary, with the goal of rescuing abused and abandoned farm animals. Outside of the more domestic animals, Shauna has spent time volunteering at the Portland Audubon Society, working with injured wildlife in their Wildlife Care Center. What time isn’t dedicated to animals, Shauna spends with her family hiking, traveling to Central Oregon, bike-riding or reading.
Pam has worked as a certified veterinary technician since 1981 and has been with us at Newberg Veterinary Hospital since 1994. She loves every aspect of her job, but especially getting to know the clients and their animals. This love manifests itself in her enjoyment of pet-sitting, as well; it gives her one-on-one time with lots of different animals, while allowing the owners to enjoy their time away without worrying about their precious pets. Pam is married with one daughter and one granddaughter and likes to spend time with her family and friends at the North Umpqua River in southern Oregon.
Kristel grew up surrounded by pets big and small, and after wishing to be a veterinarian (and a horse trainer) all those years, she attended Eastern Oregon State College for two years of Pre-Vet. She has since spent over 24 years getting hands-on experience at various clinics—including Chehalem Animal Clinic, Twin Oaks Veterinary Hospital and Countryside Animal Hospital—during which time, she became a licensed tech in 2001. The aspects of veterinary medicine Kristel most enjoys are nursing care and surgery. When not at the hospital or spending time with her husband, Ryan, and their two boys, Kirstel loves to take time for herself with a good book or a nice camera. She also places great importance on being active, which she accomplishes by running, kickboxing, hiking or participating in team rope.
Adrienne is no stranger to the West Coast; having grown up on a cattle ranch in Washington then moving to California for college to become both a Registered (RVT) and Certified (CVT) Veterinary Technician, she has finally settled down in between her two homes—right here in Newberg. Adrienne has loved being surrounded by animals since she was a small child, a trait which is still evident today, even outside of her job. She currently has two Frenchies (Mozzie and Zailey), a Cane Corso Mastiff (Lola), two Norwegian Forest cats (Ouna and Nonie), four Nigerian Dwarf goats (Richard, Eda, Jettie and Clementine), a mini mule (Comet), 15 chickens and a mini horse (Pokie) that’s actually her daughter’s. In her free time, Adrienne likes to ride dirt bikes or quads or take the dogs on a refreshing trip to the beach.
