Dr. Shauna Mead
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. Marguerite Speelman
Aloha, I’m Dr. Marguerite Speelman! I grew up in Canada where I attended the University of Calgary for my bachelor of science in biology, and went on to earn my DVM from the Western College of Veterinary Medicine in Saskatoon. The beautiful landscapes, climate, and culture drew me to Oahu. I am passionate about veterinary medicine as it allows me to use my skills to connect with the community and help to strengthen the human-animal bond. I enjoy all aspects of medicine, but am particularly interested in internal medicine, dermatology, wellness and preventative care. Outside of work I can be found exploring the island through hiking, snorkelling, scuba diving and other outdoor activities. I am eager to serve the Animal House community!
Dr. Tracey Mullins
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 Services
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 have always been very passionate about providing the best care for our patients and their families. 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.
My husband Lawrence, my American Stafford Terrier Meli, my cat Lovely, my geriatric dachshund Frankie, and the newest addition to my family (human version) Eli definitely fill my life with amazing moments! God bless!
I have two babies at home. One being my 11 year old Boxer, Solo and the other being my Red-Foot Tortoise, Opal! I recently grew a new fascination in reptiles and the care taking for them, which is why I wanted to get a tortoise!
My hobbies outside this field are painting, writing, traveling, and spending time with my family and boyfriend!
My name is Hannah, and I am from Melbourne, Florida. I have been in the veterinary field for about three years. I am finishing my undergrad at the University of Hawaii and hopefully going to veterinary school after. My hobbies are going to the beach, surfing, hiking, and traveling as much as I can.
Aloha! My name is Julianne but everyone calls me ‘JJ’. I was born and raised in beautiful Manoa Valley of Oahu. I originally attended Saint Francis school but graduated from Roosevelt High School in 2020 due to Saint Francis’ school closure.
I was previously a collegiate softball player but due to an injury – I have returned home to study and work in animal medicine. In my free time you can catch me exploring the island with my bestfriend Pilialoha – which means ‘beloved companion’ in Hawaiian. We are also deeply invested in watching anime and finding new food places!
Hi everyone! I’m Rachel. I’m originally from Colorado, but my husband is in the army and we were lucky enough to be stationed here in beautiful Oahu. I have two human kiddos and 3 fur babies who are loving the island life. When I’m not at work I enjoy hiking with my dogs and family, and water sports.
I’m from Colorado, but move around a lot due to my husband being in the military. I have two daughters in college back in Colorado. We have two dogs (Odin and Luca)and one cat (Loki). We’ve been here in Hawaii since February 2021.
Hi everyone, my name is Laila. My favorite color is green. The best part of working at Animal House is the staff here! Good vibes always 🙂 My favorite animal is a jaguar.
Aloha! My name is Amber Rodriguez, I recently moved to Hawaii from Illinois to be with my husband who is on active duty. Moving across the country can be super stressful but I had my furry friend right by my side. Cayman is a one-year-old Pittie that always has the biggest smile on his face. When I am not at the animal hospital I am with Cayman most of the time. My husband is currently deployed so I had to figure out a way to stay busy during that time. Cayman and I go on plenty of hikes or just a relaxing day at the beach that ends with hours spent at the dog park.
Aloha! I am Kari Beth. I just recently moved back to Hawaii from WA state! I am married to an amazing man, and we have two crazy Weimaraners! I have a love for all animals, big, small, and everything in between! I have worked at Petco, a Doggie daycare, and an er vet clinic! In my free time, I love being at the beach, hanging out with hubby and the pups, and really relaxing!
Bio coming soon!
