Dr. Shelby Temple

Dr. Temple graduated from the Veterinary Medicine Program at University College Dublin in 2019. She found Twain Harte during her final year, while scouting places to work, and fell in love with the entire team at the hospital and with the area. A natural bonus is being closer to her grandmother, who lives in Vallejo. While her special interests have yet to coalesce firmly – she retains an interest in several disciplines – she is currently looking into physiotherapy and ophthalmology. Outside of work, Dr. Temple enjoys hiking, playing trumpet, gaming, spending time with horses and goats, and is always looking for new possible hobbies.
