Shannon Harker LVT


     I am a 1994 graduate from the Blue Ridge Community College in Veterinary Technology.   I enjoy working with people as well as their pets !  I especially enjoy seeing and working with exotic pets like the reptiles, avians and pocket pets.  When I am not at work, I enjoy bluegrass music festivals. My family includes my husband, Matthew, 3 dogs: Kanani, Bruce and Simon as well as a one-legged cockatiel named Peg-Leg Pete and a blue tounge skink named Nigel, and a Uromastyx named Carl.

Cassie Rini LVT


 I  earned my Bachelor's Degree in Animal Science at Virginia Tech in December, 2012. I am now a licensed Veterinary Technician and I love working and learning a lot at The Animal Hospital of Lynchburg.  I have always had a passion for healing and bonding with animals, and thoroughly love working here. I have a sweet chocolate lab named Nicki.   I also have a sweet ferret named  Koto.

 I grew up a New Jersey  beach girl then moved to Lynchburg over 15 years ago.  I'm the oldest of 4 children and my parents have been married for almost 40 years now, I love watching my family grow!   I've been working in the veterinary medicine field for over 18 years now and its never a dull moment. I am excited to be part of the Animal Hospital of Lynchburg Family and they have welcomed me with open arms. I have 2 fire belly toads named Johnny and June, and a tree frog named SoJe (for now :).  In my free time I love to travel, I enjoy spending time with my niece and nephews, go camping any chance I get as well as taking in all of the many festivals Virginia has to offer.

Beth Sebby

I  started working here over a year ago, but have been working with animals for over 6 years now. I have multiple pets of my own to keep me busy when I'm not at work; with 2 dogs, 4 cats, 2 ferrets and a tortoise as well at my 3 wonderful children. Being originally from the Chicago area I do enjoy the mild winters of Virginia.  I am most excited about working with all of the Exotic animals that we see here daily.
