We’re one big family.
Get to know the team who have dedicated their lives to taking the absolute best care of your pet.
Shakkal comes to Firehouse Pet Resort with four and a half years of experience as a veterinary technician, with three of those years at Firehouse. We’re eager for you to meet her, knowing you’ll appreciate her positive energy and leadership skills as she guides and supports the team who will care for your pets.
Shakkal’s focus will be on making pets feel comfortable at Firehouse Pet Resort as if they were at their own home. She’s well-trained in using Fear Free techniques to help calm both cats and dogs. For example, she uses gentle touch, slow movements, and treats if they’re food-motivated to help pets ease into their new environment.
Shakkal is a native Texan. She graduated with a degree in agriculture, majoring in animal science from Texas State University. When not working, she enjoys spending time with her fiancé and their beautiful daughter, Eliyah, hanging out with family and friends, eating out, dancing, watching movies, and volunteering to give back in her community. Shakkal grew up with dogs and just adopted her first cat, Spotzy.
Ashtin has been in the Round Rock area since she was a child. She has always had a passion for animals and has a Calico cat named Cali Bee. Her family has always loved the Havenese breed of dogs, so the family dog named Bohdi holds a special place in her heart. When not working, Ashtin enjoys photography, painting, drawing, and singing. She strives to learn new skills every day.
With plans to eventually become a veterinarian, Olivia appreciates the importance of continued learning. She enjoys attending seminars about pets’ mental health so that she can adjust her techniques to better serve all animals. She also knows that the best skills are always changing, so she continues to learn from her team and pursues continued education opportunities. When she is not working, she enjoys hiking with her Rottweiler mix, Raven, and creating art. Olivia is excited to meet each new pet that comes in and to build lasting relationships with their owners as well.
