Shay joined us in August as our office assistant. She studied theater for a few years at UCSC (Woohoo Banana Slugs!), and a couple years in London with an emphasis on Shakespeare studies. She has always wanted to work with animals because she love animals and thinks they’re the best. Shay’s cat, Barnabas-Basil, also encouraged her to pursue a career in the veterinary field.
Barnabas-Basil was a quarantine adoption, a burn survivor who instantly charmed her with his werewolf-y / scruffy appearance. His favorite things are food, sleeping, and booping Shay for more food.
Shay is a horror enthusiast who will talk your ear off about film. You may find her roller-skating, playing Dungeons & Dragons, or exploring antique stores!
