Shana Gustafson

Shana (aka ShanaCat) is a veterinary nurse who has been with AAEC/VESC since 2010. She is passionate about emergency medicine and critical care and also loves our on-site, comprehensive laboratory, especially analyzing blood samples under the microscope. She’s been an animal advocate her whole life, but only discovered her love for pit bulls five years ago when her girl, Violet, entered her life as a backyard bred throw away puppy. Today Violet is a proud blood donor for AAEC/VESCNM and comes to work with Shana every day. Shana lives in Albuquerque with her dog, Violet, and cat, Gwennie. ❤
