Shira graduated from the University of Maryland with a degree in Environmental Science and then worked as a CSR for 3 years at Friendship Hospital for Animals, a 24/7 specialty, emergency, and general practice animal hospital. At Friendship, she created classes to help teach CSRs different aspects of their jobs. She then moved into their HR department and found her passion for helping veterinary professionals.
As a Human Resources Coordinator, Shira assists Encore’s partner hospitals with onboarding, benefits, and day-to-day matters that arise. She works hard to ensure that their teams feel supported and that their questions are answered.
Shira lives right outside of DC with her husband, two boys, and of course her cat Hazel. She loves to read when she has the time, and her favorite author is Brandon Sanderson.
