Dr. Jacqueline Shen Jacqueline Shen
Meet the friendly staff at Premier Vet Care Animal Clinic!
Born and raised in Winter Park, Florida, Dr. Jacqueline Shen always knew she wanted to be a veterinarian and pursued every opportunity to work and play with animals even though her parents were allergic to fur! She attended the University of Florida for her undergraduate studies and gained experience with a variety of species (including elephants). Dr. Jacqueline then earned her degree from the University of Florida College of Veterinary Medicine, making her a proud double Gator.
While in vet school, Dr. Jacqueline served as an officer for the UF Shelter Medicine Club and the Christian Veterinary Fellowship, with which she went on two veterinary mission trips to the Navajo Nation to work with their beloved animals. Her mission is serving animals and their people by fostering the human-animal bond through veterinary medicine. Knowing that visits to the vet can cause many animals anxiety, Dr. Jacqueline became a certified Fear Free practitioner and is passionate about creating positive experiences for pets and their owners.
Outside of work, she enjoys hiking with her husband, Dan, and their retired racing greyhound named Kingston. They also share their home with a chatty cat named Hermine, whom they “foster failed”/adopted after sheltering her and her three newborn kittens during Hurricane Irma. Dr. Jacqueline is excited to get to know you and your furry family member!
