Later she attended Colorado State University College of Veterinary Medicine and Biomedical Sciences where she received her doctorate of veterinary medicine in 1998. Dr. Sheffield has spent most of her career in private practice, with the last 2 years working at a non-profit spay/neuter/medical clinic. She believes in the value of evidence based medicine.

    The Sheffield family (husband Stan, daughter Amelia) re-located to Palm Coast in March of 2004, just in time for the big hurricane season! The Sheffields belong to a houseful of rescued critters; including dogs, cats and guinnea pigs. Dr. Sheffield believes in adoption, responsible pet ownership through spay/neuter and preventive care, Trap Neuter Return for feral cats in our community, and lasting, loving relationships with family pets.
