Shawntaye Thomas-Dalton

Born in Prince George’s County, MD, but moved to Southwest Louisiana at the age of 11. I’ve always loved animals. My animal health experience started as a young teen working for the Calcasieu Parish Animal Control. In college as an animal science major, I gained experience in large animal medicine studying swine and sheep production. Also, I volunteered at a mixed practice called Bayou South Animal hospital.

I was a pageant queen, coach, and judge. Danced for a semi-pro football team. Modeled and worked for a fashion designer. And, I had been speaking publicly since I could remember. There’s no surprise that at the age of 18 I became a FM on-air personality. I worked in radio for 8 years at Townsquare Media hosting concerts, charity events, entertainment conferences, voiceover and more. I started practicing yoga and meditation in 2010. I became a 200 hour registered yoga teacher in spring 2020.

In 2014 I moved to Houston, Tx to pursue vet tech school. My career started in general practice/reproduction at Brittmoore Animal Hospital. I finally made my way back to the east coast to pursue emergency medicine at Friendship hospital for Animals in 2017. My current interests include mentoring team members and improving my patient care/advanced skills. I hope to become a specialist and/or teach CE in the future.
