Amanda Charest, our General Manager and Patient Care Coordinator, graduated from The University of Mississippi with her B.A. in Psychology with an emphasis in Behavior Analysis. Growing up in Rankin County, MS, her compassion for all types of animals was seen from the very beginning. It wasn’t until after graduating that the idea of merging her passions of animals and medicine even occurred to her. She joined the Paws staff in July of 2012 and was promoted to Manager in November of 2013. She has many goals and desires driving her forward into veterinary medicine such as obtaining a degree in Veterinary Technology and Veterinary Specialty in Critical Care. Along for that fun journey, her three besties will travel with her: Henry Cope, Ainsley and Daisy!
