Laurie Shepherd, CCMT

Rehabilitation Specialist

The best way to describe Laurie is “There is always room for one more.”Her whole life has revolved around animals. Dogs, cats, horses, pocket pets, fish you name it, she’s owned it! She has been a veterinary technician for over 23 years and loved every moment of it. She was passionate about every aspect of veterinary medicine especially surgery.   After all those years of working at hospitals, she wanted to redirect and focus on rehab. When she found Aqua Paws she could not wait to get to work.  Such an amazing and rewarding job to help dogs and cats heal and be a part of bringing back quality of life for them.  She got certified as a Canine Massage Therapist from Brandenburg Massage Therapy school and brings everything she already learned from being a tech to Petra’s Dog Resource Center.

Outside of work, she is trying to keep up with her 2 children and fur babies. She has Border Collies, Chihuahua’s and her kitties.  A lot on her plate, but it’s what makes her who she is.  She loves every moment with them and loves working with the girls at Petra’s Dog Resource Center..Life is good!!
