We’d love to think that Michelle came all the way from Washington state to become our Practice Manager because she loves us so much, but the beautiful beaches, ocean and sea turtles were probably the real reason. When she’s not keeping our hospital running smoothly, Michelle owns a ceramic art and tile company that supports ocean and sea turtle conservation. Her favorite marine species are sea turtles and manatees, but when she’s on dry land she’s more of a cat person. Michelle also loves problem solving, project planning and finding ways to help people be successful, which allows her to utilize her certifications as a Success Principles Trainer, Brave Thinker and Dream Coach. She’s worked in almost every area of veterinary medicine and her wealth of experience has made big waves at Pleasant Pet Care!

Shannon earned her accounting diploma from Kings College in Charlotte. After having lived in the Charleston area 25 years ago, Shannon moved to Texas to raise her three children. Now that they’re all grown up, Shannon came all the way back to Mount Pleasant just to work at Pleasant Pet Care. Or maybe it was because her husband Bill wanted to retire here. Either way, we’re glad she’s here! She joined our team in 2021 and has been a great addition. She enjoys watching movies and spending time with her loved ones, which includes her Siberian Husky, Ginger and Siamese cat, Pico.
Katie is our longest-tenured employee and started in the veterinary field in 2014. Originally from upstate New York, she keeps everyone smiling with her quirky sense of humor. She excels at handling aggressive pets but especially loves working with senior dogs, cats of all ages and German Shepherds. It shows because she shares her home with 3 cats (Layla, Lilly and Lena) and a Shepherd/Malinois mix named Loki. Fortunately, her pets are not aggressive, so she can relax at home where she loves to read. Katie also enjoys horseback riding and hanging out with her husband, Pete.

After being trained as an actress, Kimber took a temporary job in the veterinary field. That ended up being ourlucky break, because 10 years later she’s still in veterinary medicine because of her unconditional love for all animals. So you can be sure she’s not acting when she dotes on your fur baby! Her professional passions include wildlife conservation, educating owners about how to provide the best life for their pets, and French bulldog puppies! Her personal passions are true crime podcasts, reading, meditating and her beautiful feline, Lou.
Having loved animals her entire life, it only made sense that Caroline would work with them. That led her to PPC, where she is currently pursuing her certified veterinary technician license. She has a special interest in cytology, but she’s not just a microscope jockey- she also loves saddling up her horse and going for a ride. Her other pets include a dog and a duck, which we hope she doesn’t ride. When she’s not taking care of your precious pets, she enjoys hanging out with friends and listening to country music.
With a heart of gold, Robi has never met an animal who didn’t make her heart melt. Her love for all the dogs and cats you bring to PPC will be obvious as soon as you step foot into our hospital. She truly treats every pet as if it’s her own, which just so happens to be three dogs, Charlee, Hugo and Roo, and a cat named Moe. Robi handles all of your pharmacy needs and especially enjoys puppy visits so she can get those cute little guys (and girls) off to a great start! In her spare time, she enjoys roller skating, singing and being outdoors, especially in the water.
Erin is one of the newest members of our team joining us in the Spring of 2023. Originally from Rochester NY, she now enjoys the sunny shores of SC spending time playing volleyball, backpacking, and collecting shark teeth from the beach. Erin joined the veterinary field a few years ago and instantly fell in love with veterinary medicine and all the wonderful fur babies we see everyday. While she has a soft spot for cats, dogs, reptiles and sharks, her real passion is being the voice and advocate for her animal patients whether they have fur, fins, feathers, or scales.
Tristin graduated from Stratford High School in 2020 and almost immediately entered veterinary medicine as a technician. After losing a childhood pet to cancer, Tristan decided at a young age that she wanted to help as many pets as she could. And that’s exactly what she’s doing at Pleasant Pet Care. She loves seeing pets that don’t feel good and then seeing them again at their recheck visit, wagging their tails and giving her sloppy kisses. When she’s not doing that, Tristan enjoys horse riding and bonfires with her loved ones, including her cat, Nova and dogs Teddy and Shelby.
After earning a Wildlife Biology degree from Lees McRae College in 2016, Stephanie became a Licensed Veterinary Technician in 2023, graduating from Penn Foster. As evidenced by her education, her true passion in life is working with animals. She loves seeing them get better after they’re sick, especially in regard to surgery. She loves the cases involving older and younger patients who present challenging anesthetic scenarios, so it’s great to see that she’s putting all of that education to good use. When she’s not helping us here, Stephanie loves drawing, hunting for shark’s teeth, and scuba diving. Hopefully she won’t find the shark’s teeth WHILE she’s scuba diving.

It’s a good thing that the pets coming in to see us already have owners. Because if they didn’t, Debbie would have her hands full. After getting married and rescuing two Italian Greyhounds, Debbie had a new love, besides her new husband. She began helping senior dogs through a rescue organization and eventually ran their volunteer program that included over 100 people. Debbie’s other passions include walking her dogs, going to the beach, and hanging out with friends and family. We’re glad she decided to hang out with us at Pleasant Pet Care since she loves interacting with all of you and your pets as our newest receptionist.
