Cheryl Marshall

Cheryl’s parents saw where her life was headed with their 5-year-old’s first pet (a guinea pig), her first favourite book (a dog atlas), and posters of dogs filling her bedroom while other teens favoured boy bands. Her journey from animal care attendant to veterinary assistant, receptionist, then technician (in private practise and her mobile tech business) was a foregone conclusion – no question that her life’s work would involve animals. At SOVH, Cheryl brings an impressive breadth of experience and skill, a no-nonsense, practical, can-do spirit, and an endless heart for pets and people alike.

Why SOVH? “As a 20-year veteran of private practise with a recent stint in corporate veterinary medicine, I’m very happy to be back where I belong – practising the best of individualized care with former colleagues who know just how to deliver it.” CM

VET TECH TRAINING:
Decades of on-the-job training along with the AAHA-approved Distance Education Veterinary Technology Program (DEVTP) and other formal continuing education coursework. Fear Free® certified

SPECIAL INTERESTS:
While Cheryl enjoys the technical aspects of ‘teching’, she’s all about the feels and loves the animal behaviour side of our work.

PASSIONS:
Cheryl’s love for and dedication to animals runs deep. She works with them, lives with them, and fosters them. Many a dog and neonatal kitten have been benefactors of Cheryl’s care. She also provides guidance and health support to other fosters working with the Forever in Foster (FIF) program offered by Speaking of Dogs Rescue.

SUPERPOWERS:
A cat/dog whisperer with a special gift for working with the most anxious or testy of patients.

WHAT MAKES HER TICK?
Helping companion animals live their best lives.

CAT OR DOG PERSON?
An “all creatures” person. While you’ll never find Cheryl without a dog (any breed, large or small), cats are beloved too (she has three). In truth, her fondness for critters knows no bounds (her household includes a parrot and a fish).
