Shónagh McGovern
Shónagh McGovern RVN Practice Manager
  • Registered Veterinary Nurse & Practice Manager

Our Registered Veterinary Nurse Shónagh graduated from Dundalk IT with distinction in 2011. Since starting college in 2008 she has worked in many clinics and hospitals hospitals across Dublin, Meath and Kildare gaining years of experience in many different areas of Veterinary Nursing.

Shónagh joined the Shenick team in September 2019 and has become the Practice Manager and Head Veterinary Nurse in our Balbriggan and Stamullen Clinics.

Her particular areas of interests are Exotics Nutrition and Husbandry, Anaesthesia, Clinical Nutrition, Critical Care Nursing and Student Learning & Development.

Shónagh has plenty of animals to keep her busy at work and at home. Playfully dubbed “her little zoo” she has several dogs, cats, budgies, a Lovebird, a Kakariki Parrot and even used to breed fancy rats! All of her animals are rescues with varying degrees of illnesses and special needs, which require a lot of extra care and attention at home.

Outside of work, Shónagh enjoys theatre, singing and playing her guitar and drums.
