Dr. Shauna Mead
VeterinarianDr. Shauna Mead is native to upstate New York where she learned at a young age she had a life long desire to care for animals. Her undergraduate studies were at Utica College of Syracuse University, majoring in biology. When she wasn’t studying, she took pride in working at New Hartford Animal Hospital as an assistant and volunteering at a monthly spay and neuter release clinic.
She attended Ross University School of Veterinary Medicine in the Caribbean and found another love: the ocean. While in veterinary school she was a leading member of PAWS (People for Animal Welfare on St. Kitts), which included being a foster to multiple dogs. After spending her last year of veterinary school at Cornell University, her fiance and multiple four-legged children ventured to San Diego. A year was spent at California Veterinary Specialists doing a rotating internship focused on small animal medicine, surgery, and emergency. Since completion of the internship in 2010 she has worked as an associate general practitioner and as an emergency clinician, as well as welcomed her first daughter into the world.
All areas of veterinary medicine are of interest; currently, she is focusing on strengthening her ability to perform ultrasounds. On days off she plans to help Dr. Hatt with spay/neuter release programs, surf, hike, and establish a home in beautiful Hawaii.

Dr. Rachel Caballero
VeterinarianI grew up on a small family farm in southern Virginia where I developed my love for animals. I spent most of middle school, high school, and some of undergrad volunteering/working at the local mixed animal practice. I attended NCSU where I majored in animal science. I then attended veterinary school at Virginia-Maryland college of Veterinary medicine. Special interests include surgery and internal medicine.
My fiancé is in the military which brings us to beautiful Oahu with our two dogs (Mike and Rambo). Our favorite hobbies include pretty much anything outdoors – swimming, snorkeling, scuba, hiking, running, bike riding, skiing, golfing. We also love laid back beach days, checking out new eateries and local craft brews!
Executive DirectorAloha! I am Jessica and I am the Executive Director here at Animal House Veterinary Center. I also manage Dr. Hatt’s other practice in Northern California! I feel incredibly blessed to spend my time in two pretty awesome places in the United States. I love being a part of the Animal House Ohana because I believe in providing the best care possible to our fur babies and encouraging and empowering staff to live their best life, both in and out of work. I began my journey in the Veterinary industry with Dr. Hatt back in 2011 and have loved the journey ever since.
But who am I outside of work? I am married to my high school sweetheart and we have 3 loveable furbabies! I have my goofball Lab, Odell, who is the biggest snugglebug I’ve ever met. I have my old lady Australian Shepherd, Maggie May, who was my husband and I’s first baby. And I have an anti-social black cat, Tekka Maki, who just really prefers you leave her be. My husband and I are passionate about traveling and do it as often as we can! I’ve been all over the world, and have wrapped our love of travel into one of my biggest personal goals – To run a marathon in every state! So far, I am 12 states in and the journey has taken me to some pretty phenomenal places that I may not have considered otherwise. When I am not traveling or running (Which admittedly is rare), I am hiking, biking, beaching, or exploring local craft breweries and wineries.
Thanks for taking the time to get to know me a little bit. Pop on in and say hi! I love to get to know our clients! I look forward to meeting you and your fur babies!
Director of Medical ServicesAlllloohaaaa!! My name is Michelle and I am the Medical Director here at Animal House. I’m a local girl born and raised here on Oahu. I traveled the world with my family because my dad was in the military and after 18 years I decided to move back home where I have remained since, “NO PLACE LIKE HOME”! Here I am blessed to share my life with my hubby of 16 years and my 3 boys (4 legged) Buddah and Tofu (Jack Russel mixes) and my boxer MJ. Love them! The last few years we have made it a point to put in more time for traveling. Recently we went to Europe and also took our first cruise ever to Mexico! But when we are home beach time is always a must!! The ocean is my reset button!
I have been in the Veterinary field for over 15 years and 13 of those years have been spent here with my Animal House Ohana. I also spend half of my time helping to manage Dr. Hatts other practice, Pawsh Place, in California.

I enjoy being part of leading our staff every day and hope I can continue to motivate and inspire them even through the toughest of days.
