Shannon L. CVPM – Practice Manager
She has worked in the veterinary field since 1991. She attended Albertus Magnus College and received an Associate Degree in Business Management. Shannon is a Certified Veterinary Practice Manager as of August 2013, and in November of 2014, Shannon was awarded “Practice Manager of the Year” by the Veterinary Management Council of Connecticut. Before starting in the veterinary field she worked in “human medicine” at a doctor’s office and in a nursing home. Although that was rewarding, her love for animals won out and she hasn’t looked back.

Sarah M. – Bookkeeper
She joined the Cats Limited team in 2006. She’s been around animals since before she could walk. She started riding horses at the age of 2 and her passion for animal care has blossomed greatly over the years.
Sarah majored in Business Management at The University of Connecticut, however, she spent a lot of her time on the other side of campus working at The Kellogg Dairy Center and participating in the UConn Dairy Club. After graduation, she became the office manager for a large/farm animal veterinarian in New York State. From there she moved to the Cats Limited family.
While animals are her greatest passion, she does also enjoy a number of other activities. When she’s not at work or spending time with her animals, she enjoys gardening, scrapbooking, reading, writing, painting, traveling, and appreciating nature.
