Bekah Turner

Bekah joined the Shawnee team in the fall of 2018 as a receptionist, and is now one of our Veterinary Assistants. She chose to start working in the veterinary field because she loves animals and wanted to work with and around them every day. She graduated high school from Bible Believers Christian School and as and EMT at Apollo. She has a 10 year old cat named Gracie who loves to spend time outside in the sun and climbing trees, and a 2 year old pit bull named Harley who is a total sweetheart and wants love and attention from everyone.
