SUZANNE SHELDON, DVM
I decided at the age of 4 to be my dog Jack's doctor and I never gave up on the cause! I have been involved in veterinary medicine for over 20 years and was awarded my veterinary degree from the University of Georgia in 2008. After nearly 10 years in practice, I have been a vet for a wide variety of species, everything from 2000 pound bulls to tiny rodents. While most of my patients have been of the furry variety, some have been feathered, shelled or even scaled. Nothing has given me the pleasure and fulfillment that treating pets in their home environment has provided. After years of slowly becoming more disenchanted with the corporate direction of veterinary medicine I decided to establish French Broad Mobile Vet. My new life as a full time visiting vet is very exciting. I love meeting pets and their people in their own environment. It adds depths to being a vet that I previously never experienced in the office and allows me to give the personal time and attention my patients need and deserve. When not making housecalls I love hiking, kayaking, gardening and spending time with my family at our home in Marshall NC.
JACKIE MOBLEY, TECHNICIAN
Jackie has been working professionally with animals for over 16 years. Originally from Iowa, she has worked as a dog trainer, kennel attendant, and zookeeper, but she spent the majority of that time caring for great apes. For almost a decade, she has worked primarily with orangutans, coming to North Carolina straight from a career at a nonprofit ape rescue/sanctuary in Florida. Jackie has worked with Dr. Sheldon directly in the veterinary field for almost 3 years and is eager to continue her career as a technician in this new and more personalized setting. Outside of work, Jackie is outdoors as much as possible. She enjoys the mountains by hiking and working to grow food on her small farm outside Burnsville. She lives there with her partner Henry, and their rescue dog, 2 cats, and rabbit.
