Shannon, Kennel Attendant (Picture coming soon!) 

We’re happy to welcome Shannon, who joined us this past June, to the Stream Valley Kennel team! She graduated from South Lakes High School in 2014, and thereafter began her pet care journey full time. She brings with her years of experience and love for animals from local pet care facilities. During her time at Stream Valley, she hopes to learn more about dog behavior, general caretaking, and animal grooming. In the future, she would love to grow more in the medical field, eventually becoming a vet assistant and going back to school as needed.

Shannon currently lives with her mom and step-dad. She also has an older brother and younger sister who live with her dad. Her older sister lives in New York with her husband and Shannon’s niece. She also has 2 dogs and 2 cats: Daisy, Rita, Lucy and Jemi, plus a saltwater reef tank filled with colorful fish! In her spare time, Shannon enjoys being around nature. She loves going for hikes, picnics, kayaking, fishing, and anything else that is an outside activity. Reading, writing and watching movies are also activities she enjoys!

Roya, Kennel Attendant

Roya became a member of the SVVH kennel team in November of 2020. She's grown up in Ashburn where she's lived most of her life, and is currently a junior at Rock Ridge High School. Working at Stream Valley is her first job, and we are thrilled to be the first stepping stone in her career! She hopes to learn a great deal about animals along with gaining experience, then ultimately going to vet school to someday open her own veterinary practice. 

Roya has a total of 4 pets at home, which include 2 grey tabby cats named Luna and Leah, a toy poodle named Baron, and a hamster named Snowball. She lives with her two brothers (who keep her busy!) as well as her mom and dad. In her free time, she rides horses and rides on an equestrian team. Roya also volunteers through various clubs at school such as Leo Club, National Honor Society, Pre-Professional Health Honor Society, Environmental Club, Rock Ridge Phoenix Obsidian Club, and the American Sign Language Honor Society. 


 Our Kennel Attendant staff is generally comprised of area high school and college students. As they are likely among your friends and neighbors, our staff treats your pets just as they would their own, with care and skill that is backed by our Kennel Management and Veterinary teams.
